Our Testimonials

Hear what our apprentices have to say about our apprenticeships.

Develop individuals. Develop companies.

After finishing my apprenticeship, I feel more confident and I can work on different tasks which before were uneasy.

Elisabeth Serafini of Park Plaza Hotels (UK) Ltd

“Apprenticeship training programmes are specifically tailored to ensure you develop the skills meanwhile you are working, it involves a lot of hard work and to be honest, most of it is meant to be done in your spare time.

However the effort paid back, after finishing my apprenticeship, I feel more confident and I can work on different tasks which before were uneasy, an example is the gross to net calculation.

From 6 April 2022 to 5 April 2023 National Insurance contributions increased by 1.25 percentage points, I was glad to share with the team the spreadsheet MBKB provided during the webinar and exercises so we manage to calculate manually few payslips to ensure the system was updated correctly.

I would like to thank Emma, my tutor during the last few years, she’s been really patient and she supported me with all the tasks and doubts I had!”

Amy Thomas of Bilston Nursery School

When doing my apprenticeship MBKB really helped me get through my course with providing the information that I needed. My tutor was amazing to me, she was always there for me to ask for help and I wouldn’t change anything! It was amazing doing my level 2.

Apprenticeship – Payroll

Employer – Wigan Council

If you ever have the opportunity to undertake an apprenticeship provided by MBKB I would fully recommend it.

Declan Powis of Manchester City Council

“My name is Declan and I am a payroll officer working for Manchester City Council.

I chose to undertake this apprenticeship to develop my payroll knowledge as well as gain some exposure to the sides of payroll which I don’t directly deal with such as pensions, HMRC reporting (FPS/EPS etc.) and many pieces of legislation which do not directly impact my daily job.

I feel like the primary benefit of completing this apprenticeship is that my knowledge in these areas have gone from being vaguely informed to being at a level where I’m now confident to apply the knowledge to my job and pass this on to others. In addition to this, I now possess a formal qualification which is recognised throughout the industry and will help me move around within payroll should I seek new work opportunities.

Now that I’ve completed my apprenticeship, I aim to remain within the industry for a few more years, learning all I can from my current position before moving on to a more senior / technical position either within my company or external.

MBKB have been supportive throughout my course, all the way from the course signup straight through to the end point assessment. My tutor Sam was very knowledgeable and helpful, explaining each unit to me in great detail and always replying to any queries which I had swiftly.

If you ever have the opportunity to undertake an apprenticeship provided by MBKB I would fully recommend it. The support provided throughout my time studying has been a huge help, and I now have access to a wide range of learning resources which I was previously unaware of.”
