Our Testimonials

Hear what our apprentices have to say about our apprenticeships.

Develop individuals. Develop companies.

Sam Cardwell from APS Group

“Sam has made fantastic progress on the course and has developed his knowledge, skills, and behaviours within payroll. It has been great to see the impact the course has had, not only in these areas but also in his confidence and independence within his role. He has also taken full advantage of the apprenticeship and used resources available to gain additional information.” – Molly Dodwell.

Being part of an apprenticeship has become the best decision I have taken so far.

Khaleda Begum from London Borough of Hackney 

“Being part of an apprenticeship has become the best decision I have taken so far as it has helped me learn and also experience the work life at the age of 17. I was never fond of the traditional A-level route and college route; therefore, I chose an apprenticeship which I felt suited me best as I am more of a hand on person where I am doing things physically to gain experience.

Currently I am a payroll apprentice, and this apprenticeship has affected my role for the better as what I learn during my studies overlap into my work which makes it easier for me to understand. The apprenticeship so far is really good, and I would highly recommend it for those who are looking to gain experience and qualifications.”

The apprenticeship provides great experience in the working world.

Maddi Cooper from Whitley Stimpson Ltd 

“The apprenticeship provides great experience in the working world. You receive one-to-one training, giving you the chance to put your skills into practice and to gain confidence in the working environment. Alongside this, you receive a final qualification in Payroll. It is a great way to begin your payroll career and opens up many more opportunities.”

I genuinely believe that apprenticeships are the best form of learning.

Tegan Shaw from SGS United Kingdom Limited

“I genuinely believe that apprenticeships are the best form of learning as they combine formal teaching and experience of colleagues together to ensure that the apprentice has a well-rounded understanding of payroll and can show how they have applied it in the workplace, which is why I strongly believe that apprenticeships, payroll related or not are the way forward and why I would recommend to anyone. After finishing Sixth Form I knew I didn’t want to go to university and have at least 3 more years of studying, which is why I knew an apprenticeship would be the best for me to discover which field I wanted to progress in.

My apprenticeship didn’t feel like high intensity learning, as it was natural with the support of colleagues and MBKB who guide you through what is required, whilst also being in the ‘real-world’, with the prime example of working in Payroll during the introduction of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (Furlough) was a real testament to this. 16 months after I started the apprenticeship in late September 2019, I have now completed my Payroll Administrator Level 3 with a Distinction.”
