Ruby feels her confidence has improved as a result of the programme, she now deals with queries effectively both on the phone and in person.
Jack came onto the apprentice programme with very little confidence, he didn’t achieve the grades he was predicted, and he just wanted to work. Jack enrolled onto the apprenticeship scheme back in October 2019 as a Business Administrator. Alongside the qualification he had to complete English Level 2 and Maths Level 2. Jack completed his Apprenticeship in January 2022 and gained a Distinction along with his English and Maths qualifications.
Since passing his apprenticeship Jack has confirmed that he was taken on full time by Bond Turner legal services in March 2022. He has been given increased responsibility, promotion and a salary increase. Jack started off as a Filing Clerk and within six-seven months he worked his way up to Legal Assistant. Jack felt his communication and confidence were the biggest areas that improved throughout, he now trains up new staff within the business. His English and Maths has vastly improved alongside his time management. The qualification helped him progress with his career and grow as a person. He has thanked Sysco for all the support he was given along the way with his qualification and especially his English and Maths qualifications.
