Blog: The Apprenticeship Opportunity: Creating a Win For Everyone
We are a business that offers apprenticeships that lead to good career progression. People are at the heart of our business, and we’re passionate about learning and growing together.
At Vets4Pets, there’s been a lot of excitement about the apprenticeship programme; however, one thing stood out from the start in regards to making each apprenticeship a success.
“When we first set up our programme, we did a lot of research and quickly understood that managers needed training to understand their obligations and the workload of the apprentice,” says Beki. “Manager training is crucial as there can be a big learning curve so all line managers with an apprentice in their team now complete an induction programme.”
According to Laura Moseley, who recently completed a CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development) Level 5 HR Consultant/Partner apprenticeship, the support she received from her manager is really good.
Laura started her Vets4Pets apprenticeship after being with the company for 18 months.
When asked what Laura would tell others considering an apprenticeship, she replied, “Go for it!”; however, she stressed that an apprenticeship should not be taken lightly and that it requires commitment as you still have a full time job with responsibilities.
This is music to Beki’s ears. “We are a business that offers apprenticeships that supports career progression. People are at the heart of our business, and we’re passionate about learning and growing together. Apprenticeships are a natural fit.”
