Apprentices deal with ‘corruption eruption’

For their summer social evening the Company’s apprentices played a round of ‘Junk yard’ golf before moving on to discuss current matters and share experiences of the recent examinations and other current matters.

The final hole was labelled ‘Corruption eruption’ but the apprentices, aided by the programme organiser David Gracie and Senior Warden, David Lock, addressed it with integrity and all triumphed.

Eleven apprentices attended the evening and had an enjoyable and enlightening time.

Their next meeting, on 19 July, will address the changes proposed by ICSA and how they align with their vision of how they see their careers developing. Apprentices, their masters  and others wishing to attend are welcome to attend.

Past Master Dudding spoke to the group about the history of the Company and the significance of the Apprentices Programme.

Senior Warden David Lock invited suggestions from the apprentices as to how they might be more involved in the Company’s programme and activities. A number of innovative suggestions were forthcoming regarding the educational and other aspects of the Company’s activities. Additional suggestions are always welcome.
