  • Guidance, coaching and experience of how to negotiate with lease providers and garages, with respect to the costs of repair and maintenance etc;

Our company has a successful track record in recruiting, supporting, and developing apprentices, and in honour of the recent National Apprenticeship Week, we spoke with Naseem, our IT Support Officer, who recently completed his apprenticeship and is now qualified as a Level 3 ICT Support Technician. Since completing his apprenticeship, Naseem has become a full-time employee within our company and is now an essential part of our busy IT Support Team.

Naseem gave us an insight into why he chose to carry out an Apprenticeship as part of his further education:

“I decided to go with an apprenticeship as I prefer hands-on learning and being in the workplace gave me that experience. The staff have welcomed me into the company and my supervisor has helped me a lot during my course by allocating me enough time to do course work. My line manager was also very approachable when I had questions and by running through different scenarios and outcomes, gave me a greater understanding, which benefited my development.

Personally, for me, it was better to apply for an apprenticeship than go to university, because I learnt from the experience and by being in the middle of the workplace environment. So, if you’re a person who prefers the hands-on approach for learning, I would recommend an apprenticeship.”

An apprenticeship includes:

  • Paid employment with paid annual leave;
  • Hands-on experience in the sector/role of interest;
  • At least 20% (8 hours a week) of off-the-job training;
  • Formal assessment, which leads to a nationally recognised qualification;
