Apprentice's are taking over..
John Buddle Work village, runs a business centre based in Benwell.
Throughout 2014, we have seen a staggering increase of new workers coming in to the John Buddle Work Village to work with our tenants. All of who seem to be new apprenticeships.
We have Bianca Rogers from Reviving the Heart of the West End, Leighvie Fearns- Kennedy and Codie Riley from Arrow Sales, Vicky Dixon from New Tyne West Development and Johnny from Love Food. All of the Apprenticeships at the Work Village are learning about different subjects from catering to sales and hope to progress on to permanent employment when their apprenticeships come to an end.
Bianca, an Apprentice for RHWE since December 2013 says
‘’I wasn’t too keen on doing an apprenticeship at first because I thought the learning would be hard but it was quite simple and the support you receive is great. It’s brilliant that you can learn and gain experience at the same time. I am so glad I chose to do an apprenticeship because my confidence has grown and I have met some lovely people’.
Hopefully throughout 2015, we see even more apprenticeships coming through our doors to learn and train with our tenants. It is a pleasure to see such supporting businesses giving these young people a chance and opportunity.
