18 Case Histories - Peros Peter Goodey, Joint Managing Director, Peros ‘Since the roll out of the Apprenticeship program within our customer service team, the benefit has been felt two-fold. On a personal level the individuals are motivated about achieving their own Apprenticeship targets and have really enjoyed the challenge. It has also had a positive effect on the Peros business through more confident, engaged and knowledgeable staff. One of our key aims at Peros is to offer the scheme to a wider audience.’ Lauren Andrews, Customer Relations Supervisor, Peros ‘My apprenticeship has helped me with my confidence in progressing as a Supervisor. It has opened up opportunities for me to develop my role and department. It also gave me an insight as to why things are done, such as job appraisals, and has linked directly to my new managerial roles and responsibilities.’

19 Case Histories – Trinity Health Nick Beevers, Practice Manager ‘We considered taking an Apprentice to provide support for my role as I needed someone to share the IT workload. We agreed the criteria and Bucks Adult Learning did the rest in promoting the role and selecting the most suitable candidates for us to interview. It has been a very positive experience. We have a person who has grown immensely over the 12 months of the Apprenticeship and has made a positive difference in the practice. I would definitely repeat the process again in the future.’ Jacob Webb, IT Systems Administrator ‘My year as an Apprentice with Trinity Health has been extremely beneficial. I’ve learned so much this year and gained lots of really valuable work experience that I will take with me throughout my career. I would definitely recommend the Apprenticeship scheme to any one thinking of applying as it’s a really great way to work, get educated and get your career started.’

20 John Colet School Coralie Perry - PA to Headteacher ‘Our Apprentice has become a valuable member of our team in a very short period of time. The recruiting process was simple and the continuing support from the Bucks Adult Learning assessor has been excellent. I would like to encourage other employers to offer apprenticeships as I feel they offer an excellent education and provide valuable experience for young people.’ Isabel Macbeth - Finance Apprentice ‘My Finance Apprenticeship has been very beneficial. I now feel I have varied and extensive accounts knowledge for someone who has studied for just one year. I feel it was a much better route into accountancy as I gained experience in working with accountants and different systems while studying towards a respectable qualification.’
