Supporting Apprenticeships – professional development for our team

Focus on skills and training

We’re celebrating the achievement of two of our team, who have successfully completed their Apprenticeships.

Tim Wolfe, from our Technical Services Team and Luke Goodman in our the Sales Team.

On finishing his IT Help Desk Apprenticeship, Tim commented:

“Passing milestones and getting modules ticked off every few months, kept me motivated. I’m looking forward to continuing my professional development, in the Technical Team, as a Help Desk Engineer.”

Luke said of his Business Administration Apprenticeship:

Seeing how I have developed my knowledge and understanding of the business, as a result of my apprenticeship, gives me pride. I’m keen to continue expanding my knowledge, as Sales Operations Executive.”

What the Directors say…

Amir Dean our Sales Director commented “Luke came to us with no experience and no formal training in our industry, but with an open mind, a willingness to learn and a ‘can do’ attitude, which is very credible. He has pushed himself from his comfort zone, to learn about the IT industry, the products and solutions which we provide and our customer service expectations.  

In a relatively short space of time, through hard work and dedication, Luke is now working very competently on his own and with colleagues. Luke communicates well and is always willing to listen. He has become a very valuable member of my team.”

Mike Roberts our Commercial Director added “Congratulations to them both, for making sure that the service level they provide to our customers is maintained at the highest level.”
