WARRIOR IS OPENING DOORS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE ENTERING THE WORKFORCE
WARRIOR DOORS is currently working with award-winning IT trainer BALTIC to train and support a young apprentice through his Level 4 NVQ.
WARRIORS DOORS have made a commitment to take on a young person for a twelve-month apprenticeship to help them enter the workforce. 18-year-old LEE RUDD from Solihull is the successful applicant. During his year at WARRIOR, Lee is learning a trade as a coding and information systems apprentice. Lee is also working hard towards his Grade 4 NVQ online, using BALTIC’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). Combined with the hands-on training that WARRIOR DOORS offer, this programme will raise Lee’s NVQ pass potential by 14 percentage points above the national average.
BALTIC TRAINING SERVICES is rated as “GOOD” by OFSTED, who praised their “outstanding selection and recruitment process” that matches learners to employers like WARRIOR for work experience and apprenticeships. BALTIC played a strong role in the apprentice recruitment process, and has appointed a dedicated coordinator to ensure that the coming year runs smoothly.
DAVE PERRYMAN, IT Operations and Project Manager at WARRIOR DOORS, said; “It’s more than just taking on someone for a year, WARRIOR DOORS are making the commitment to support Lee’s learning, making sure he has access to the space, stability and resources he needs to succeed at this apprenticeship”. In return, Lee is helping to build up our team and skills base here at WARRIOR in CRM, sales and work order processing. This will help our customers because with the skills in-house we’ll be responding faster to complex queries.”
LEE RUDD said; “WARRIOR DOORS is a great team of people to work with. Everything I need to help me get my NVQ is here. I have about six weeks of studying to do across the year, and I know that everyone here is behind me. I learned that around 95% of apprentices find themselves a permanent job by the end of their course, and the combination of study and practical experience is really making a difference to my set of skills and my confidence on the job.
