  • Kerion Hall

    Process Apprentice, Essity

    Kieron is one of Essity’s Process Apprentices which involves studying currently for Level 2 PEO2, BIT level 2 and Diploma in Manufacturing Engineering level 2.  He is based at Essity’s large integrated manufacturing site in Prudhoe.

  • Jasmine Lee

    Professional Construction Technology Apprentice, Conlon Construction

    Jasmine commenced her apprenticeship with Conlon Construction in September 2018 following a 5 weeks work experience over the summer with the company.

    Jasmine chose an apprenticeship as she was unsure that full time education was the right career path for her.

    She really enjoyed her work experience with Conlon and found it very appealing.

    During her first two years of apprenticeship, Jasmine will be completing her Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Construction Contracting Operations and a BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Construction and the Built Environment.

    “When I was aware that there was an apprenticeship placement available at Conlons, I thought it would be a great opportunity to gain experience and learn a professional job role in Construction whilst earning money at the same time.”

  • Bethany Cassell

    2nd Year Investment Operations Specialist Apprentice, AJ Bell

    Hi, I’m Beth and I work at AJ Bell as an Investment Operations apprentice. I work on the property team which involves the purchase of commercial property within a SIPP and the ongoing administration such as lease renewals and rent reviews. I am also working towards achieving the Chartered Institute of Securities & Investment’s Investment Operations Certificate.

  • Anna-Marie Searle

    Business Apprentice, Northern Devon NHS Trust

    “Who said university was the only option to study a degree?”

    Working as a Business Administration apprentice for the NHS has without doubt been the best decision I made since leaving school in 2015.  I started as an apprentice at 16 and have been able to gain invaluable real life skills and work experience whilst furthering my education and achieving recognised qualifications.

    During my time within the trust, I have studied towards diplomas in Business and Administration and I’m now currently studying towards a degree in Business Management as a higher apprentice.  In my opinion, having the opportunity to study whilst gaining paid work experience is far more beneficial than full time education.  In 4 years’ time I will have completed my degree, but also have 7 years of employment from a recognised employer and be on the right path to fulfilling my aspirations of a career in Operational/General Management, all by the age of 24.

    Working within the NHS has taught me vital skills and the importance of team work and effective communication to ensure we are ‘delivering high quality and sustainable services that support the health and wellbeing of all our patients.’  I have received a tremendous amount of support both towards my work and studies, which has allowed me to develop from a school leaving, into a mature young confident adult, ready to face all life challenges.  I would like to continue working within the NHS and continue progressing, developing and learning from my wiser peers.

  • Jessica Hill

    Laboratory Science Apprentice, GSK

    Hi I’m Jess and I’m a laboratory science apprentice at GSK. I am on a degree apprentice where after the 3 years I will have a degree in Chemistry as well as 3 years work experience with the company. 


    My school was very insistent on getting their students to go to university, of which I followed that classic route as I wasn’t aware of other options at the time. I spent a month at university studying chemistry and knew it wasn’t for me, I was ready to start working but wasn’t ready to give up the studying. I took a year out and did an entry level job of which I enjoyed but it wasn’t pushing me enough academically.


    Then I came across the degree apprenticeships at GSK, since then I am now fully trained in the finished products department analysing samples of popular consumer healthcare products such as Sensodyne and Aquafresh. Every 9 months I rotate to a different department which will cross train me across different areas of the business and gain skills that usual employees may not have the opportunity to do. I really enjoy my apprentice and wouldn’t change a thing.

  • Tyler Clarkson

    Apprentice Wind Turbine Technician, Siemens

    Tyler is an Apprentice Wind Turbine Technician working for Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy. He works across the country on various offshore sites, both maintaining and servicing large-scale wind energy production facilities.
    After completing A-level Physics, Maths and Product design, he spent a number of years after Sixth form college gaining life experience in work.

    Tyler is in his third year working for SGRE in his apprenticeship. He is currently stationed in Grimsby, working on 6MW turbines along the East coast, alongside studying for his final offshore maintenance qualification.

  • Rebecca Wood

    3rd Year Fabrication Apprentice, Leyland Trucks

    Since starting at Leyland Trucks in August 2016, I feel I have excelled both personally and professionally.  My confidence, skills and knowledge continue to increase as my apprenticeship progresses.

    Becoming an apprentice from secondary school meant that I had the advantage of being able to learn a trade ‘hands on’ as well as in the classroom, enabling me to gain a more in depth knowledge of my chosen profession.

  • Hannah Resnick

    Project Management Apprentice, Transport for London

    I am a first year Project Management Apprentice currently working on installations of ticket vending machines, gate line extensions and Cycle Hire docking stations, as well as, on the deployment of Microsoft 365 across TfL. I thoroughly enjoy seeing the tangible results of my work when I visit a station and can see how it affects the public on a day to day basis.
    I am proud to work for TfL as I have always had a lot of support when I am studying towards my qualification, but also experiencing real life scenarios at the same time and I aim to progress in the company after my apprenticeship.
  • Sam Whitehead

    Higher Level Apprentice, Electricity North West

    Sam is one of our Higher Level Apprentices who joined us because he felt it was the best way to get into the industry- studying and working in one place. He enjoys working with other apprentices and describes the environment at Electricity North West as having a real family feel to it. Sam is proud to work for a company who make a huge difference to the community around it and hopes to continue his career at the company once he’s finished his training.
