National Apprenticeships Week

National Apprenticeships Week

To mark national apprenticeships week we’re taking a look back at our apprentice graduates and looking forward to their developing roles within the company.

We’ve successfully used the apprenticeship scheme to provide on the job training for local young people and create new positions within our expanding organisation. In the past year SP Services (UK) Limited have placed two apprentices, they have since gone on to become full time permanent members of staff.

Pete joined us in May 2014 as a college leaver, recommended by career advisers to undertake an IT apprenticeship, and has since gone on to undertake certifications in Adobe Software as well as his NVQ, becoming a fully fledged designer in his own right and a valuable asset to our IT team. Pete had this to say about his role.

“My Business Administration and IT apprenticeship with SP was a valuable and rewarding learning experience. I learnt many new skills and abilities such as how to use Adobe software, managing the company website and setting up and fixing different technology. I fit in well with the other members of my team and I am now a full time member of staff at SP.”

Our second apprentice graduate Lucinda is an integral part of our customer services team. Before joining SP Services she hadn’t considered becoming a Customer Service professional, but has completely embraced this dynamic role and we look forward to seeing her progress within the company.

“My apprenticeship with SP was not easy - in fact, it was harder than I anticipated. But, after a tough year of getting my coursework completed - I finally finished, gaining new and valuable skills that help me thorough my day-to-day work. However, the learning will not stop as I continue to absorb more information each and every day. My job role has changed following completion of my apprenticeship and I now have the duty of looking after the shop and its visitors which involves customer face-to-face interaction. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their patience, understanding and continuous support throughout my apprenticeship and now. I am very lucky to have a great team of people to work with and so grateful to have been offered a full time position. 

We would wholeheartedly endorse our apprentices and the apprenticeship scheme, with two more apprentices set to graduate at the end of March and many more to come in the future, our apprentices are playing a vital role in the ongoing development of our company.
