What our clients say
Our apprenticeships programme offers young, talented individuals the opportunity to begin their career on a structured and supported programme, as an alternative to continuing in higher education. “We have a proven track record in recruiting apprentices, particularly within our engineering and customer service teams. “Last year, we recruited and trained 22 apprentices, with most ending up in full time positions in customer services and engineering. “This helps us to build our pool of talented youngsters and allows our experienced colleagues to pass on their invaluable knowledge to their future successors.
I started my apprenticeship in July 2016, and have now completed 10 Months of my BTEC Level 2 in Business Administration. I secured my apprenticeship after submitting my contact details online via the National Apprenticeship Service website, and received a call from the recruiter at Urban Futures.
The recruiter called regarding another job that I had applied for however, he ended up suggesting my current apprenticeship, as it better suited my skill set. The recruiter made it very simple and explained everything thoroughly, so I had all of the information I needed. He also made it clear that I could call him at any time if I had any further questions.
I was interviewed by Levertech and was successful and, soon after, met my mentor and senior manager, who were both very nice and welcoming. My mentor took me through all of the safety procedures and made it clear that I could speak to her if I ever needed to.
The apprenticeship itself has helped me develop my social & communication skills, my IT skills, and my work ethic, which has in turn helped me develop in life. My assessor has helped me with things I didn’t understand during the lessons, and in general. She also made it clear that I could contact her any time to ask questions or get help. She has also helped me get better at producing and presenting written documents. This has come in handy both in and out of work.
When I meet my assessor I usually see my recruiter, mentor, and senior manager as well. They are always friendly and I always look forward to seeing them all.
In conclusion, this apprenticeship is the best thing that has happened to me, and I can’t think of one bad thing about it apart from the fact that it only goes on for a year
