After leaving school, Steven knew he wanted to continue learning in a work based environment as he wanted to follow a career in Warehousing. He initially joined YH Training Services on our Pre-Apprenticeship provision so we could work with him to develop his Employability, Maths and English skills; qualifications he hadn’t gained at school.

Within 4 weeks, after helping Steven to improve his skills, we assisted him in gaining an interview with a local employer where he succeeded in securing Apprenticeship employment over the other candidates for the role.

Steven says “I am thoroughly enjoying my Apprenticeship and am learning all aspects of the role on the job, earning money, and at the same time gaining the theory and skills and working towards my qualification. From day one, my supervisors and the rest of the workforce have treated me like one of the team and provide me with ongoing support and mentoring.

The Sales Director has said that he’s impressed by my maturity and work ethic; I feel these qualities have been enhanced by undertaking an Apprenticeship and the support of my Training. Apprenticeships are definitely the way forward to start a career.”
