Admin Apprenticeship

I am almost a year into my Business Admin Level 3 apprenticeship now and I am still enjoying it and finding it very helpful alongside working. I think both working and learning at the same time is so beneficial as not only are you getting the education and qualification you want, but you are also working within a business, gaining experience, and witnessing everything that you are reading in the textbooks first hand

– Emily, Admin Apprentice in the Buying Department

Accounting Apprenticeship

“I have found studying and working together to be a very pleasant experience as it allows me to gain the qualifications I need to be an accountant whilst gaining the experience. I’m really enjoying my courses as they are both interesting and very engaging which allows me to practice all of the new skills I’ve learned. It’s a wonderful workplace and all of my colleagues are very welcoming, understanding, and always happy to help.”

- Magda, Accounts Apprentice
