Marking 2018’s National Apprenticeship Week (5-9 March), seven apprentices from Halesowen College are celebrating their success at the West Brom learning new skills and getting on the job training and experience.
Tayisha Brown, Aminah Mubasher, Zoe Doyle, Jamie Travis, Oliver Street and Samuel Lowe are all completing Business Administration apprenticeships, with Callum Quinn completing his in Accountancy.
The seven apprentices are based at the West Brom’s head office at Providence Place, West Bromwich, where they work four days a week, followed by one day at College.
Jemma Perks, from Halesowen College’s Apprenticeship Team, said: “Our partnership with the West Brom has meant that seven young people are getting valuable job experience which will benefit their future careers. They have settled in really well and are making great progress.”
Helen Vernon, the West Brom’s Recruitment Advisor, added: “As a major employer in the region, we want to offer young people a positive experience of working life which will hopefully act as a springboard for them into a longer term career.
“It benefits the individuals, but also us as the employer as well.”
Halesowen College currently has over 180 apprentices, with new vacancies being added every day. More information is available at www.halesowen.ac.uk. The West Brom employs 750 people in roles at its head office and across a network of 37 building society branches.
