Meet Joel - One of our Apprentices!
Joel is completing his Business Administrator Apprenticeship Level 3 at Prefix
An apprenticeship is a way for young people to gain the skills, knowledge and the experience they need to get into many careers. We are very proud to have a couple of apprentices here at Prefix, one of which is Joel who works in our Aftersales team.
Here, Joel explains why his apprenticeship works for him.
"“I chose to do my Apprenticeship with Blackburn College because I heard good things from a former student who told me it was a well-organised and friendly place to study.”
“I’ve really enjoyed learning about all aspects of the business environment and studying at the College has enabled me to learn things that have complemented the skills I’ve gained in the workplace. Spending one day a week at Blackburn College has also allowed me to socialise with others who are also doing an Apprenticeship and I’ve definitely made some friends for life as a result of this!”
“Blackburn College has been great at supporting me and giving me guidance about what needs to be done in my future career. All the staff are extremely friendly and this makes it really easy to ask when you’re stuck and need a bit of help.”
“I recently won the NFA Young Person Award and winning the award was the greatest and proudest achievement of my life. This wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Blackburn College and Prefix Systems!”
“Since my first day, Prefix Systems have been immensely supportive of my professional and personal development with their relentless support. Everyone is so supportive – especially my manager Jenny.”
“Prefix have helped me to learn many new IT skills including Microsoft Excel and Sage. My confidence has really grown as a result of this and this has given me the boost I needed to believe in my capabilities.”
“I really enjoy my job at Prefix Systems and I feel very appreciative of being part of it. In the future, I would like to do another Apprenticeship – maybe in Management.”
