“I decided that I would do an apprenticeship because I wanted to learn and earn a wage at the same time. I feel like it has been the best option as I have proper on the job training, without the expectation that I already know what I’m doing. I get lots of support both my employer and Catch22. I am also learning lots of things that I wouldn’t have known if I’d gone straight into an admin job, for example, looking at different conflict resolution techniques”.
“I decided to do an apprenticeship over higher education, because I wanted more qualifications but not in a school setting. I felt an apprenticeship was the most advantageous option. I chose Catch22 to be my training provider as many others requested their apprentices to go to college once a week. With Catch22 they come to my workplace to do the training. Catch22 have really helped me progress in the workplace as well as learning life skills. My assessor was really supportive and to know she was only a phone call away was really reassuring. I am currently looking at getting an NVQ 3 in Business and Administration with Catch22 at my new place of work and I couldn’t be happier”.
