“I would recommend doing an Apprenticeship if you think you could progress better through that route than through University. I’ll always value the Apprenticeship that I did, it has prepared me for working life and has been really helpful. “The sky is the limit to anyone who wants to pursue a career through an Apprenticeship.”

Liverpool City Region Combined Authority Metro Mayor’s Office
“The Fast Track to an Apprenticeship programme definitely helped me, before doing the course my CV was boring and didn’t have much information in and I didn’t have much confidence in interviews, so these parts of the course in particular really helped me get to where I am today. The Career Coaches matched me to my current position and recommended that I apply, because they saw I was ready to go into the workplace and my skills were a good fit for the job.”

“The range of different activities on the Fast Track to Apprenticeships course really appealed to me; you learn how to apply for jobs and what to expect in a business environment – office etiquette, how to behave in a workplace… this was really helpful for me when I was settling in.”

Clerical Officer
St Helens Council
“I couldn’t speak highly enough of St Helens Chamber Business School and the staff I’ve had involvement with. It’s been very, very positive. When I hit difficulties due to a few changes Bobbie was there and the tutors were there to help me out in any way they could, I couldn’t speak highly enough of the whole experience.”

“The course stood out as it was something different. It offered me the chance to learn whilst in a working environment. Even though we were there to learn we were treated like employees rather than kids in a classroom.”
