Gavin Parkinson, 22, Business Administration Apprentice, MLV Carriers: “I’ve found my apprenticeship a lot more engaging than theory based learning I’ve completed in the past. Instead of theory based learning, I’m constantly, proactively learning on the job and I’ve taken to this well.”
Matthew Verinder, Managing Director MLV Carriers :”Gavin’s the first apprentice we’ve had working with us and the impression he’s made is fantastic. He’s adapted to the role quickly and played an active role in the company’s growth and brings an excellent working attitude to the office day in, day out.”

Statistics show the number of young people in Britain aged 16-24 out of work stood at 506,000 between August and October 2014.

“As a training provider, we have an obligation to aid in the improvement of this statistic and are in the process of designing various strategic techniques to help tackle this, certainly in Wigan, Leigh and Bolton.” Tim Davies, Managing Director of Ultima Skills Training.

Carina Parry-Stevens, Ultima Skills Training adds:”Learner Intake Day is an informal day designed to educate young people into the different training routes available to them.

” Expect to see interactive workshops, impartial information, competitions and prizes. Anybody and everybody who’s unemployed, aged 16-24 are welcome to attend.” Carina goes on to say.
