Hear from the Employers

Here, some of our employer partners explain why apprentices are so important to their businesses.

Here, some of employer partners talk about why they hire apprentices, the benefits of becoming an apprentice and the future opportunities ready for the next generation of apprentices – could you be one of them?

Ashley Roberts, Apprenticeship Manager at Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service says; “Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service provide many wonderful opportunities for apprentices of all ages and in a multitude of careers.

“Apprenticeships are fully embedded across the organisation and are used as a tool for developing skills and supporting training, whilst allowing the individual to achieve a nationally recognised qualification.”

Helen Ryan, Regional Head of Human Resources at Brother’s of Charity says: “Apprenticeships provide a great talent pipeline for our workforce. We consider the apprenticeship route a great way to invest in our people and the return on that investment is a highly skilled and positively engaged workforce. Learners gain their experience with us and we can ensure we support the development of their skills and they have the right values as part of our team.”
