On a recent visit to Devon HRH The Prince of Wales met Applegate’s Chief Executive, Stuart Brocklehurst, and one of our workplace degree students, Jo Nancekivell. The meeting was one of a series with charities, agricultural and educational organisations within the county.

 

“Prince Charles was especially interested in the programmes we have to support the career development of young people, working in conjunction with Petroc College and Plymouth University,” Stuart commented. “He was very well informed on changes affecting businesses with the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy, and expressed keen support for our measures to help students get onto the housing ladder when they graduate.”

 

“Most important of all, Jo’s curtsey was flawless.”
