Apprenticeship Stories: After Completion

To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week, we have spoken to our apprentices here at Comms365; some of them are currently partaking in their course, and others have completed theirs and are still working for the company.

In the third and final article of our three-part series, we have spoken to two of our employees; Sam and Sam, who previously completed their apprenticeship with us.  Read on to find out what they have achieved since finishing their courses.

1.  How long did you do your apprenticeship for?

1 Year

2.  Why did you choose to do an apprenticeship?

I chose to do an apprenticeship as I wanted a new challenge in a scenario I was not comfortable in. I wanted to explore new adventures and learn something I didn’t know much about.

I have achieved many things within the company, both personally and professionally. One personal achievement would be gaining confidence within myself and one professional achievement would be learning to be customer friendly either face to face or talking over the phone.

4.  Would you recommend an apprenticeship to others?

I would recommend an apprenticeship to other people as it is a great way to learn and gain the skills to work professionally within a company which is what is needed to make the first steps towards a bright future.

5.  How has Comms365 supported you throughout your apprenticeship?

Comms365 encourage and support you to grow personally and professionally. They have supported me to gain the highest knowledge, not only within the company but also within IT in general. They will make sure your apprenticeship work is up to date and make sure you are not falling behind and will support you if you do.
