Kerri Kerri, facemediagroup Customer services administrator I think apprenticeships are brilliant. They’re a chance to take a leap into the real world. I’m dealing with real- life customers and situations all the time, answering calls and emails, checking deliveries, advising customers and interacting with them. It’s all about learning and moving forward, and I’m getting everything I need to move onto the next step. 00/00/2012

Nana Nana, Anthony Vrahimis Design Consultancy Production assistant It’s real hands-on experience here, learning skills in a working environment. Having the chance to oversee some tasks has helped me develop my managerial skills, too. It’s given me the ability to manage my own time wisely to reach targets and deadlines. It’s all good preparation for what I want to do next: set up my own business. 00/00/2012
Shane Shane, BT Operate IT technician University never appealed to me, so after I finished school I joined BT as an apprentice IT technician. While I was on the course, BT paid for me to study for a foundation degree. And I’ve had some amazing experiences, like building a medical centre in Peru and a school in Ecuador, and presenting in front of 200 people. I’ve got loads more confidence now, and it’s all down to the support and respect everyone in the company has shown me. It’s been the making of me. 00/00/2012
Miles Miles, Bentley Motors Junior engineer Since I started working at Bentley I’ve done placements in different departments so the work is always varied. I chose to do an Apprenticeship because it means that while I’m studying towards a foundation degree at college, I also get paid and get hands-on experience. I’ve always been interested in cars so where better to train than Bentley? 00/00/2012
Josh Josh, Universal Race Technology A composite laminator I’ve always been interested in motorsport, and I’ve been part of some great projects here. I’ve been at URT for five years now, and this is where I want to stay. The support I’ve had, the jobs I’ve worked on and the responsibilities I’ve taken on – they’re all helping me towards a supervisory role in the company and, hopefully, a long, promising future here. 00/00/2012
