The best part of my apprenticeship is that I can learn and develop while gaining experience within the working environment.

Louise Allen from Hepco Slide Systems Ltd

“The best part of my apprenticeship is that I can learn and develop while gaining experience within the working environment. I can put into practice what I have previously learned from MBKB and communicate new methods of working to my employer.

If you are looking for the chance to earn and learn, an apprenticeship if the way forward. The study material and support given by MBKB during my Payroll Administrator Apprenticeship has been of an excellent standard, allowing me to keep up to date with ever changing legislations and finding ways that suit my needs to obtain information throughout the course.

Continuing to study and work during a pandemic has been a great achievement for me and being able to lead on any queries with trust from my employer. Being able to answer any questions or concerns from employees and the Company, shows that the study resources through my apprenticeship and the experience from working the job is allowing me to progress further within my career.

With MBKB, you have constant support and assistance through their tutors and online resources. You receive reviews which are great to recap on how your learning is going and what points you need to focus on for the future. With being remote, you can study on and off the job with plenty of webinars offered to assist in your training which has been a blessing during the current pandemic.”

Experienced colleagues shared their knowledge and supported me.

Laura Stoodley from Solihull MBC

“Experienced colleagues shared their knowledge and supported me. I felt I was part of a team and responsibility for my work gave me confidence and helped build resilience. There were challenges but I knew as an apprentice I was in a safe place to learn which took the pressure off.

I’ve come from an interesting perspective because I left college and like a lot of people went to university, however afterwards I found it difficult to move into a career. I had a qualification, but I didn’t have any experience in a field or any direction. So, when I started this apprenticeship what appealed to me was the chance to gain practical work experience and develop skills knowing that it was leading to my future career. In that way it’s never too late to find your career. I wish I had done it sooner; I would have saved a lot!

I’ve appreciated having a dedicated tutor who made it clear they would support me in whatever way I needed it. MBKB provide amazing resources and regularly measured my development so that I felt prepared for my end point exam.”

I have really enjoyed the support and 1-2-1 mentorship across the course.

Jack Dickinson from Krispy Kreme

“I have really enjoyed the support and 1-2-1 mentorship across the course and the regular headspace to take time out of my fast-paced role and reflect and review different methodologies that I can apply in the real world with my role as Delivery Performance Manager for Krispy Kreme UK.

The framework MBKB offers is fantastic and adapted the course to my learning style which allows me to feel challenged, supported, and accountable for each of the learning milestones. The ability and experience of the tutors to take the methodologies and apply them to real world business scenarios is key to engagement too and can certainly be associated to some of my recent key successful projects to skills learned in the sessions.

I have enjoyed many of the learning milestones and they have run parallel with my development and promotions in my career. Some have been sharpening existing skills with a new perspective but the biggest new ground for me personally was the self-awareness element of the course and the Myer’s Briggs sections. I found this a real key unlock for personal awareness and really created a new perspective to allow me to collaborate effectively with others.

Adam’s a total star and the business he represents has offered a brilliant professional development space for me. I like the variety of content, the frequency and headspace the session gives you from your day-to-day role and the real-world application in the sessions and knowledge from the tutors. I would highly recommend MBKB to those looking for an external training provider.”
