Assessors at Blackburn College are always on hand to help you

Here's what Trevor had to say:

"I decided to do my Apprenticeship with Blackburn College because I knew it was a local college with a good reputation. The careers adviser I came to see was very helpful – providing me with lots of information about different careers available and the courses needed to pursue them.

As a mature student, I was initially hesitant about returning to education. Fortunately, Blackburn College were very good at presenting me with an assortment of options. I was able to trial a number of different employers before deciding on World Options – which is where I’m currently employed as an apprentice and somewhere I really enjoy working.

The Apprenticeship I’m doing is so varied and the units I study at the College are very interesting. I enjoy spending a small portion of my time at Blackburn College because class is always fun, productive and everyone gets along with each other.

Tutors and assessors at Blackburn College are always on hand to help you achieve and make progress and always challenge you to be your very best. I plan on advancing onto the next level in business administration after finishing my current Apprenticeship – hopefully within a permanent role with World Options, possibly within HR."

Here's what Trevor's line manager had to say about him:

"I know that our Franchise Sales Director is thrilled with the Welcome that Trevor gives to anyone visiting World Options as in many cases Trevor is the first person they come into contact with and he gives a friendly, professional welcome to them that gives a great first impression of our company.

Trevor is always polite and helpful, he will try to find the answer to any questions he is asked and will reply to any enquiries he gets as quickly and efficiently as possible. Trevor is well liked and appreciated by the whole office for his helpful and efficient manner and any recognition he receives is thoroughly deserved."
