What our Apprentices say...

“The Business and Administration Apprenticeship has accelerated my knowledge of the real business world. It has helped me build confidence and taught me to take responsibility and ownership of my role.” Alex Barnett, The Local Directory

“My Apprenticeship has been really beneficial and a really good fit with my role” Lauren Green, White Oak Finance

“I find it easier learning if I jump straight into it. My Apprenticeship has really helped me to get the work experience as well.” Amie Cleary, Cerub PR

“The Management Apprenticeship has helped me with my confidence in progressing as a supervisor. It has opened up opportunities for me to develop in my role and also develop the department”. Lauren Andrews, Peros

“My year as an Apprentice with Trinity Health has been extremely beneficial. When I started I had little experience but from day one I was made to feel very welcome. Buckinghamshire Adult Learning was also very helpful and supportive. My assessor Sarah visited monthly to check I was happy at work and to give me guidance as I completed my Business/Admin NVQ. I’ve learned so much this year and gained lots of valuable work experience that I will take with me throughout my career. I would definitely recommend an Apprenticeship to anyone thinking of applying as it’s a great way to work, get educated and get your career started.” Jacob Webb, Trinity Health
