"We have welcomed six Apprentices into the Shared Revenues Partnership over the last five years:
"Courtney and Jack, our two current Apprentices are already getting to grips with supporting the Partnership.
"Our previous Apprentices Georgie, Conor and Paul, all gained promotion towards the end of their Apprenticeships and are flourishing in their new roles within the team."
"My service has employed three ICT Apprentices over recent years: Adam, Holly and Isaac have each learned key ICT and Service Desk skills whilst gaining industry-specific computer and telephony systems qualifications.
"Our ICT Service Desk Apprentices bring energy, enthusiasm and an eye for technical detail to the team, and this benefits all our service users. Two former ICT Apprentices are still working within the Council, having gained promotion since completing their apprenticeships, and the other secured an external role."
"Having an apprentice brings young life to our service area and Louis’s can-do approach and attitude is a breath of fresh air in the office. It is great to have a young person’s perspective on how we should be delivering services and Louis keeps us in touch with how young people want to interact with companies and local authorities, such as us."
Watch our video to see what Louis had to say about his Customer Service Apprenticeship.
"What I have found refreshing from working with my apprentice Holly is her enthusiasm and eagerness to learn new skills.
"From the business point of view I have found that employing an apprentice enables us to train and mould their learning to complement our skills and way of working, and the training that the apprentice receives from the training provider further hones their skills.
"I think that the benefit of an apprenticeship is how it enables young people to gain work place skills and behaviour, hands-on experience and a qualification. What’s not to like!"
