"Whilst working at Black Country Manufacturing Limited, I am happy to confirm on behalf of the company the strong partnership we have with The Apprenticeship Works. I have personally found them to be helpful in all routes of communication; taking on board our specific requirements for the type of apprentice we wish to take on board. They have in return helped to supply us with high calibre apprentices, two of which we have been fortunate to offer permanent employment within the company."

"Typically an apprentice arrangement through a college means that we have to allow day release each week for them to complete written and theory tasks. With Apprenticeship Works, the student is with us 5 days per week enabling us to invest as much time as possible with on-the-job training. The student also gains a full insight into the world of work whilst earning their accredited qualification. The Apprenticeship Works look after their students as well as us as the employer. They are always there with advice and help and their communication level is second to none. The Apprenticeship works has supported us in many ways and have we formed a mutually respectful professional relationship. We would recommend their service to anybody and would provide a glowing reference to any prospective employers looking to place an apprentice through The Apprenticeship Works."

"Apprenticeship works have been encouraging throughout my year long Apprenticeship. Having kept regular contact with myself and my Boss to keep well informed of how I am and how my Apprenticeship is going. My broker has put a large amount of time and effort to build on a great relationship with myself and the company I work for. Throughout my Apprenticeship, whenever I have had any questions they have always made themselves available and provided information whenever I have requested it. They have a nurturing approach which helps to support you throughout your Apprenticeship. After working at my company for one year, I have now been offered full time employment as a CAD Coordinator. I cannot thank Apprenticeship works enough for their help throughout the last year."

"Our shop-floor employees have recently signed up to study for an NVQ qualification which is financed through The Apprenticeship Works via government grants. As BCM are a small company, the opportunity for employees to gain a nationally recognised qualification and improve their skills whilst working on the job has been excellent. All of which is at no cost to the company."

"The assessors who visit both the apprentices and those studying for NVQ qualifications visit our site on a regular basis offering support and guidance to the students."
