DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT! Take a look at what some of our learners have to say about their experience of working with us: “It was always my first choice to become an apprentice when I left school. I didn’t want to go to college full-time and I thought that learning while working and getting qualifications was the best of both worlds. Protocol Skills were fantastic at supporting me through the application process and giving me guidance on what roles were available with which employers in my local area. They always took into account my aspirations, and becoming an apprentice has really exceeded my expectations. I love my role and the fact that Protocol Skills made the application process so simple was an added bonus. For anyone thinking of becoming a placement apprentice I’d say go for it – it will be the best choice you ever make!” “I’d recommend doing a work-based qualification to anyone – it’s nothing like traditional college work – you get to put what you learn into practice straight away. And if you work hard it can massively improve your career prospects.” “Having had some trouble in the past with finishing courses at college and generally losing interest, I was a bit dubious about starting another course…however working alongside my Training Assessor meant she really kept me focussed and engaged in the course, giving me all the help and support that I needed – I have truly enjoyed the course and will continue to do so.”
