New apprenticeship programme showcases Southampton’s culture and heritage

Southampton is being championed with a new apprenticeship programme showcasing Southampton’s culture and heritage.

It has been launched by locally-based training provider Kiwi Education.

Kiwi’s managing director, Michael Steel, said he wanted to build on and capture the same energy and passion shared throughout the City of Culture 2025 bid, and believes that people working in Southampton visitor economy can play a crucial part in the city reaching its full potential.

The City Ambassador Programme has been built to upskill and develop customer-facing team members, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to deliver an exceptional Southampton customer welcome.

 Councilor Satvir Kaur, leader of the Southampton City Council thinks it’s good news for the city. She said: “This is a fantastic programme, offering new and exciting opportunities for not only those taking part, but also to the city. It will be great to have city ambassadors promoting everything our diverse, dynamic, creative city has to offer.”
