Hear what our apprentices have to say about our apprenticeships.
I would 100% recommend MBKB as they offer a range of courses, the course that I took was very well structured, the staff were always supportive and easy to approach and I felt as though if I needed help, it was always there.
Megan Greer from The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust
“Hello, my name is Megan Greer and I completed a payroll administrator level 3 apprenticeship with MBKB. I chose to go down the apprenticeship route after finishing college and changing my mind about my career path. I liked the idea of learning in an actual work environment, getting a qualification and getting paid for it at the same time.
The top 3 benefits that I have experienced while completing my apprenticeship is gaining real-world knowledge and experience within a workplace, starting to earn a regular wage and learning to manage my money and being able to use what I have learnt on my course within my actual job role. Now that I have completed the apprenticeship and gained a full-time position within the same workplace at which I carried out my apprenticeship, my career ambitions are to gain more experience and to be promoted to a more senior role in the future. MBKB have supported my learning massively.
My tutor was always able to help me if I needed anything and it was always made clear to me where I could gain support if I needed it (whether this was with my apprenticeship or personal life). My pastoral officer was also very supportive and always checked up on me to make sure that my apprenticeship was going well and to ensure I was given a chance to speak up if I had any concerns. I would 100% recommend MBKB as they offer a range of courses, the course that I took was very well structured, the staff were always supportive and easy to approach and I felt as though if I needed help, it was always there.”

Taking on this apprenticeship has also made me realise that it can never be too late to learn new skills and even roles. I would say an apprenticeship is the best way to achieve any career goals.
Samanta Terauda from Encore Personnel
“Hi, My name is Samanta and I had recently finished my Level 3 Payroll Admin apprenticeship. The experience as a whole could be described as a big rollercoaster. Before starting the current role, I had 0 to none experience in payroll, but I’m really glad to have taken the challenge as now I’m able to process payroll from start to finish.
Taking on this apprenticeship has also made me realise that it can never be too late to learn new skills and even roles. I would say an apprenticeship is the best way to achieve any career goals, as you can both work and learn the practical side of the role, and do the course work, watch webinars to learn the technical side of payroll.
As I got to do weekly payroll, it could be quite challenging at times, due to the work / apprenticeship balance, but no matter what, I had great support from my tutor Claire Bartlett, who was always extremely supportive no matter what. Favourite part of the apprenticeship for me was the sessions with my tutor as I was able to ask any questions then and there, and if I was struggling with anything, Claire was happy to set up any additional sessions needed, to make sure that I understand the subject.
If anyone wants to have an apprenticeship, MBKB is the place to go to. Who knows, maybe my path with MBKB will cross once again.”
I am immensely grateful for the transformative experience I had with MBKB. I wholeheartedly recommend their services to anyone seeking quality education and guidance.
Jeffrey Mushtaq from HS2
“MBKB’s dedication to delivering high-quality education and fostering a conducive learning environment made a significant impact on my journey. From the moment I enrolled in the program, the team demonstrated professionalism, knowledge, and a genuine passion for helping students thrive.
The resources and materials provided were comprehensive and up-to-date, ensuring that I had access to the most relevant information. Moreover, the tutors expertise and willingness to go the extra mile to clarify concepts and address any queries were instrumental in enhancing my understanding.
Not only did they equip me with the necessary knowledge, but they fostered a supportive community of fellow learners. The collaborative atmosphere allowed for fruitful discussions, shared learning experiences, and networking opportunities that will undoubtedly benefit me in my future endeavours.
I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to the MBKB team. Their professionalism, accessibility, and dedication played a pivotal role in my success. I truly felt valued as a student, and their genuine interest in my progress motivated me to strive for excellence.
I am confident that the knowledge and skills I have acquired through the apprenticeship will serve as a solid foundation for my future professional growth.
I am immensely grateful for the transformative experience I had with MBKB. I wholeheartedly recommend their services to anyone seeking quality education and guidance.”

I was able to learn so much more about the historical and legislative background surrounding payroll and obligations to ensure I understand my role at greater depth.
Jade Wade from Coventry City Council
“I am a mum of 2 who changed from an established career in Senior Leadership within Special Needs schools to working within the payroll sector, I opted to go down the apprenticeship route as I felt that I would get more support when learning something new and to provide me with a broad knowledge of payroll rather than bespoke to my organisation. The benefits of this apprenticeship has meant that it worked extremely well around my family as the time to study was allocated in my working hours and not additional, I was able to learn so much more about the historical and legislative background surrounding payroll and obligations to ensure I understand my role at greater depth and having both corporate support and external support from the apprenticeship I felt like I had lots of people I could turn to when I was struggling with any elements of my role. I am ambitious and hope to lead my own payroll within the next 5 years, following successful completion of a level 5 apprenticeship with MBKB. MBKB have been fabulous, always at the end of the phone or an email and provided lots of additional sessions when the testing requirements and exam body were changed at short notice. I would not have passed this qualification without their support. I would 100% recommend MBKB and say to anyone who, like me, is afraid to make that change- do it! I will never look back now.”
