University Apprentices get their NVQs
24 August 2009
The latest cohort of University Apprentices were awarded their NVQ Level 2 in Business Administration certificates this month by the Registrar, Derek Pretty.
2009 marks 13 years since the University began its Apprentice Scheme. Some 140 young people have now completed this programme in departments across the University.
The apprentices receiving their certificates were: Sarai Chisimba (Estates), Laura Done (Student Health), Zoe Ford (Geographical Sciences), James Hughes (Deaf Studies), Catherine Lee (Education Support Unit), Abby Morris (Personnel Services and Staff Development), Charlotte Rodman (Department of Earth Sciences), Emma Taylor (School of Law) and Faye Travers (General Office).
The following apprentices completed their qualification but were unable to attend:
Paul Edwards (Aerospace Engineering), Stephanie Keary (Politics) and Kim Hua (Electrical Engineering).
The University currently holds the ‘Employer of the Year’ award given by local training providers for its commitment to apprentice development, which is part of a much wider commitment to the training and development of all staff as part of its Positive Working Environment initiative.
