"We are very clear with our apprentices that the work input creates career opportunities output, as a few of our early apprentices are now also doing education degrees and have progressed into management for the business at our second setting.”

Nick added: “Its fantastic to be recognised for the work we do, in particular working closely with The Angmering School running career days and taking pupils on for work experience, with some of them going on to do full apprenticeships with us.

"Over the past few years we have seen some of our apprentices go on to full time Degree courses in Education and others move into Management roles at our new setting.”
