Pre Apprenticeship Success stories:

I have recently been employed as a business administration apprenticeship working in an office for a training company.I gained this post after completing a pre apprenticeship programme. I would highly recommend a pre apprenticeship, it gave me the chance to get some real experience of working in an office and gain some of the skills I would need to find employment,when I attended job interviews I was able to talk about my experience which gave me loads of confidence.

Before the pre apprenticeship, I had no direction in my career prospects, but now I have improved my skills, my maths and English grades have improved and I have almost completed a Level 2 Health and Social Care course with the prospect of starting a placement soon. My goal now is to go to university and become a Social Worker.
