– Abi Gibson, Pali Warrington

Kieran Martin – NL Williams Group

“I would definitely recommend an Apprenticeship. I didn’t think I would be able to build a website and use Adobe software, I’m learning new skills every day.”

– Kieran Martin, NL Williams Group

Kieran Hackett – Resolve Energy

“The course stood out as it was something different. It offered me the chance to learn whilst in a working environment.

Even though we were there to learn we were treated like employees of the Chamber rather than kids in a classroom.”

– Kieran Hackett, Resolve Energy

Oliver Eddleston – Chalon Components

“ I feel like I find the practical tasks enriching and I’ve learned a lot more by being hands on than I would have done if I was learning from a book.”

– Oliver Eddleston, Chalon Components

Traineeship success

“Taking part in the Traineeship programme improved my confidence and motivated me to get out of the house and build a career. If I hadn’t have done the course I’d still be looking for work. I’m now doing my NVQ and I hope to keep building from there.

“I was so impressed with the Starting Point service that I encouraged my boyfriend Danny to visit.”

– Paige Malaney

Alannah’s career gets a kick start

“I’m earning as well as learning. Personally I didn’t want to go to university and study for three or four years as you’re not guaranteed a job at the end of it.

“Now I have a full-time job whilst also gaining qualifications to help me progress.”

– Alannah Kirby, WLSS

Will Fairhurst – GPW Recruitment

“I was at college but I wasn’t enjoying the education side of it like the exams and A levels.

“My Apprenticeship got me financially stable at an early stage and I love what I am doing now. It’s been an added bonus getting a qualification at the same time.”

– Will Fairhurst, GPW Recruitment

Callum Hunking – TD Construction Testing

“I like how much support the Chamber gives you through the Apprenticeship. The company have supported me as well.

“Taking on this Apprenticeship has been really helpful and I have learned so much about myself and other things I didn’t know.”
