Wirral Globe: Wirral Metropolitan Apprenticeships

Thanks to the success of our 100 Apprenticeships in 100 Days campaign earlier in the year, Wirral Met College and Wirral Globe have teamed up again to call on local employers to support the 100 Apprenticeships Challenge once again.

Apprenticeships are an alternative way of gaining skills and qualifications whilst developing your experience in full time employment - and earning money at the same time! The 100 Apprenticeships Challenge aims to place 100 people onto new apprenticeship programmes and the campaign is open to any employer, whether they are a large multi-national enterprise or a small or medium sized company.

If you are an employer and interested in apprenticeships, Wirral Met College, supported by the National Apprenticeship Service, will provide you with all the free guidance and advice you need. Even if you already employ apprentices, you can still get involved in the 100 Apprenticeships Challenge and seek new opportunities within your business.

Did you know? Anyone above the age of 16 can sign up and become an apprentice, they are not only available for young people. Even if you are already employed, talk to your employer and discuss the options to sign up to an apprenticeship programme, so that you can develop your skills and improve your prospects.

What does an apprenticeship involve? An apprenticeships programme is a package of nationally recognised qualifications covering practical job related learning, theory and understanding, and English and maths. These qualifications are all gained whilst working full time and earning a salary.

There are different levels of apprenticeships to provide you with a range of different qualifications. Wirral Met College offers over 100 different apprenticeship frameworks; from business administration, accounting, cleaning, hairdressing, IT to construction trades, property services, retail management and science. For more information on the different levels and types of apprenticeships available, and also to see current vacancies, visit wmc.ac.uk/apprenticeships or www.apprenticeships.org.uk.

Customer service is vital to any business

Every business needs excellent customer service to survive in competitive markets.

Providing an excellent service to customers can be a significant way of differentiating your organisation. There are many opportunities for careers and employment within customer service. Careers in this sector can vary from customer service sales to telesales or even self employment. Selling is a crucial part of any business – if it does not sell its product or service, a company can easily go out of business. Salespeople with excellent customer service skills are essential. As an advanced apprentice, you could take on a team leader role and have the ability to earn higher rates of commission.

Wirral Met College can help you get to where you want to be, and choosing an apprenticeship could be your first step to a career in customer service or sales. To undertake an apprenticeship, you need to be in full-time employment. If you are not already employed, you can search for apprenticeship vacancies by visiting apprenticeships.org.uk or wmc.ac.uk/apprenticeships. As well as searching for jobs, you can find out everything there is to know about apprenticeships and the types of apprenticeships available.
