Build the future

To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week we are showcasing our success stories from across Orchard Hill College & Academy Trust.

Matt, a former Customer Service Apprentice at the College has gone on to gain employment as a Learning Support Assistant. Before joining the course Matt was working in McDonalds and decided to join the Apprenticeship course to give his career a new direction. During his apprenticeship, Matt spent his time working within the Digital Team, learning new skills and supporting some of the College students.

Matt successfully completed his course with a distinction and now is enjoying the benefits of a new career in education. Matt said “I have made a lot of new friends and enjoyed my course, I got a lot out of it”.

To hear more of our success stories this week, follow Orchard Hill College and Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust on Twitter.
