Apprentices 2016

Why become an apprentice?

You’ll have the chance to earn a salary while gaining valuable, hands-on experience. Plus, you’ll get to study for a nationally-recognised qualification, like an NVQ, together with paid holidays. Our apprenticeships generally last between 12-18 months, with time out of the workplace for study and assessments. During that time, you’ll also have our continual support and guidance.

We only ask that you’ve left full-time education and that you have the right to work in the UK.

What our apprentices are saying

 

Chloe (Business & Admin Apprentice): What I truly love about my apprenticeship
is gaining the work skills I need for the future. It's preparing me for so many
different things. I not only have skills from a working environment, I’ve become so
much more confident.

Hannah (Business & Admin Apprentice): I can continue my education and earn
money at the same time which saves me having to get a part-time job over
weekends and evenings on top of my studies.

Tom (AAT Apprentice) - This apprenticeship has not only allowed me to gain a
qualification, but also gain vital experience within the work place. It’s allowed me
to gain much more confidence, whilst also helping me prepare for the huge jump
between school and working life.

Jamie (Business & Admin Apprentice)  My role involves working with different
teams & this has broadened my knowledge & skills. My confidence has increased, 
which has had a very good effect on my work and personal life.  I've also got to
meet some really fantastic people along the way, which makes my job all that
more enjoyable.

Sharne (Former Advanced AAT Apprentice): Studying as an apprentice eased
the transition into a real job. This is because I was familiar with the work and the
people I worked with. I don’t regret not going to university and I believe choosing
the apprenticeship route has been the best decision I have ever made.
