Business / Personal Improvement
‘Every year we take on a new trainee, who then receives apprenticeship training through Bournville College. The scheme allows our staff to achieve an NVQ, functional skills and a technical certificate, all suitable to their job role. The training is delivered through a mixture of college attendance and on-the-job training. We have worked with the College for four years and the partnership is working well for us.’
Colin Crowdy, Finance Manager
‘I came to Harris Lamb straight from school as an Office Junior. My Apprenticeship is Administration allowed me to get qualifications for the job that I was doing. I have since progresed to do an Advanced Apprenticeship, which will see me get more qualifications, this time at Level 3. My assessor is very nice and easy to get on with. I enjoy working for Harris Lamb and doing an apprenticeship has allowed me to work while being trained which is great.’
Amy Shakeshaft, Office Junior, Advanced Apprenticeship in Administration
‘I started at Harris Lamb four years ago on an Apprenticeship programme as an office Junior. It was my first job and the training helped me a lot with my learning. It was good to get a mixture of on-the-job and classroom training. After I finished my apprenticeship I was promoted to a Finance Assistant, doing purchase ledger and accounts, which I really enjoy. I then went back to Bournville College to complete my AAT Foundation and Intermediate qualifications.
