We took on an apprentice to work as a teaching assistant for one year. She worked extremely well with all the other members of staff. She has been and continues to be a great asset to the school and if the need arose, we would certainly consider taking on another apprentice.
The team at Youthforce works extremely hard to make sure they find the right school, year group and area for each apprentice. I was given the opportunity to begin my apprenticeship at Middle Street Primary School, it’s been the best career choice I’ve ever made.
Richard and the Youthforce team saw the potential in myself, and have helped me throughout my whole apprenticeship. They have all supported me not just educationally they have also taught me a lot of life skills, that I didn’t know I needed to work on. I am now a more confident and professional person and nearly a fully qualified materials technician with Balfour Beatty. Amazing support and an amazing opportunity, can’t thank the team enough. Apprenticeships are the way forward and these guys are second to none.
Staff were clearly highly vocationally competent and from the session observed used their skills and expertise to plan and deliver teaching, learning and support to meet each learner’s needs. Interviews showed this provider changes people lives through the training, support and guidance provided.
I completed my first years teaching assistant apprenticeship a few years back with Youthforce then I completely gave up. I then decided I wanted to do my level three but I just didn’t see myself getting through it. The Youthforce team saw potential in me and encouraged me to do my level three with them and to further my career! They supported me all the way through and I completed the course months earlier than expected and I am now studying to be a primary school teacher! I can honestly say, If it wasn’t for Youthforce, I wouldn’t be where I am today! I highly recommend youthforce and their team!
The best thing about working as an apprentice is that we can work to gain experience in the science industry plus we get paid for it. Also, the work is more meaningful and is relevant to the sector I am in. I would not have got this at college
We find the delivery of training is very professional and consideration is given to the needs and aspirations of all participants. The trainer collaborates with apprentices line managers and supports them to put measures in place that will in turn support apprenticeship development.
Thank you so very much for your much-valued input and training. I know all three ladies have thoroughly enjoyed the apprenticeship and have grown professionally throughout the year due to your high quality of support and training.
The training delivered by Youthforce has been very good and I am very happy with the training thus far. This has been demonstrated through my assignments which I have done really well in. I am happy that Youthforce is supporting me in my level 3 laboratory technician apprenticeship and I am confident I will continue to do well
We have had 2 apprentices at our school and we have benefited from their enthusiasm and hard work. They are willing to try their hand at anything, and have developed good relationships with the pupils and staff. Having them in school has enabled us to be more creative with our Teaching Assistant timetables, thus providing more support for the pupils who need it most.
Youthforce have amazing communication, they always inform me about things and always let me know when things are happening.
Excellent service with ethos of high quality support with an emphasis on the needs of the apprentice. Good communication and partnership working with the employer
Amazing, didn’t even know it existed and this is definitely what is needed for today’s youth.
I love the fantastic support from my tutor Filip!
I have had very good feedback from staff in general regarding each girl’s performance and knowledge in the workplace. Aside from their practical experiences and opportunities here, Team Leaders have stressed that much is due to the quality of the training they are receiving.
My tutors praised my work when needed and told me what could improve when necessary.
Big positives for Youthforce: My tutor David always being in touch and helping out with any concerns, and the great communication we have.
This has been a very positive experience. They are approachable and supportive and quick to respond to any problems. Apprentices have been of a good quality and one has gone on to be employed by my school.
Can I also just say how impressed we are with Youthforce. Not only have you sent us good applicants but you have been so prompt in working with us, communication is excellent. Thank you!
Very pleased with the quality of apprentices provided by Youthforce and the communication with the Youthforce team
My favourite experience with Youthforce was meeting my tutor John, because I felt confident that I had someone that I could speak to about my apprenticeship.
