Kerri
Kerri, facemediagroup
Customer services administrator
I think apprenticeships are brilliant.
They’re a chance to take a leap into
the real world. I’m dealing with reallife customers and situations all the
time, answering calls and emails,
checking deliveries, advising
customers and interacting with them.
It’s all about learning and moving
forward, and I’m getting everything I
need to move onto the next step.

and training in all other aspects of the job.
•Your employer provides your ‘on the job’ training and
pays your wages.
•The remainder of your learning is delivered by a College

Training provider

Nana, Anthony Vrahimis
Design Consultancy
Production assistant
It’s real hands-on experience here,
learning skills in a working
environment. Having the chance to
oversee some tasks has helped me
develop my managerial skills, too.
It’s given me the ability to manage
my own time wisely to reach targets
and deadlines. It’s all good
preparation for what I want to do
next: set up my own business.

Shane
Shane, BT Operate
IT technician
University never appealed to me, so
after I finished school I joined BT as
an apprentice IT technician. While I
was on the course, BT paid for me to
study for a foundation degree. And
I’ve had some amazing experiences,
like building a medical centre in Peru
and a school in Ecuador, and
presenting in front of 200 people. I’ve
got loads more confidence now, and
it’s all down to the support and
respect everyone in the company
has shown me. It’s been the making
of me.

Miles
Miles, Bentley Motors
Junior engineer
Since I started working at Bentley
I’ve done placements in different
departments so the work is always
varied. I chose to do an
Apprenticeship because it means
that while I’m studying towards a
foundation degree at college, I also
get paid and get hands-on
experience. I’ve always been
interested in cars so where better to
train than Bentley?

Josh, Universal Race Technology
A composite laminator
I’ve always been interested in
motorsport, and I’ve been part of
some great projects here. I’ve been
at URT for five years now, and this is
where I want to stay. The support
I’ve had, the jobs I’ve worked on and
the responsibilities I’ve taken on –
they’re all helping me towards a
supervisory role in the company and,
hopefully, a long, promising future
here.
