What has been the best thing about completing an apprenticeship?

The best thing about completing my apprenticeship was that I secured a full-time job with Gilbarco Veeder-Root in a very well-established industry. It has allowed me to understand why businesses do certain things and how they are run.  I completed both the Level 2 and Level 3 Apprenticeship and now hold qualifications that are relevant to my job role.

How do you think an apprenticeship has benefited your career?

This has benefited me because I had no idea what I wanted to do in regards to a career when I left school.  Now I can develop my administration career and go in to office management.

Would you recommend an Apprenticeship? If yes, why?

Yes, I’d recommend this course because it gives the apprentice the opportunity to not only earn money whilst learning but also the qualifications that are relevant to the industry.  You also get to see the overall view of how a business runs and what to expect from a full-time job, if you are offered one at the end of the programme.


During his apprenticeship, George achieved the ‘Malcolm Bridges’ Award at the ITEC’s 2015 annual awards ceremony for going the extra mile to attain achievement.
