Employer testimonials

I just wanted to say that Warrington & Vale Royal College have been a pleasure to work with.  Everyone has been so helpful and knowledgeable. This is our first time as an apprenticeship provider and we have needed a lot of advice. So, a big thank you to all the apprenticeship staff!”Amanda Jolley, BGSutilities


“Employing Apprentices has been really good for us as it means we are able to train people the way we want. We always try to have at least one or two apprentices at any one time. It’s a good way to recruit as it can be difficult to find qualified people to recruit these days.” – Gary Hill, Warrington Vehicle Centre


“It was wonderful to work with the college and your students. We would recommend the experience to other local businesses. Working with and supporting each other has proved to be a great success.”  – Ginny White, Blakemere Craft Centre


“Placements give young people a fantastic real life work experience and we strive to show them how exciting and rewarding a career in contract catering can be. The feedback we’ve received has been equally as rewarding for us as a business too, as young people go back to colleges more enthusiastic and motivated, which is great to see.”- Rob Bruford, Dine Contract Catering


“Serco as a company has been a strong supporter of apprenticeships for many years but this is the first time we have employed apprentices in our maintenance department. It is a great opportunity for us to take on new employees who we think have huge potential and set them up for a successful long-term career with Serco by giving them the right training and support. We find the mix of classroom and on the job learning works really well.”Luke Collier, Head of Maintenance at Serco
