Feedback from our apprentices

  • Everyone has helped me settle in and I have increasingly got to know and work with a more diverse set of people within the council, not only colleagues who are part of my immediate team. The training within the organisation has been great and I have appreciated every minute of it, especially when I can see how it has directly impacted our service in such a positive way. Khalled, Data Analyst Apprentice, Adult Learning Service
  • If you are thinking about embarking on an apprenticeship, go for it! I have received so much support so far and I continue to receive that support now. Being an apprentice allows you to gain skills and knowledge you cannot without being in the environment. Lauren, Regulatory Compliance Apprentice, Licensing & Public Protection
  • Getting an apprenticeship in the Coroners Court has been such a great journey. Every day in the court is different, which makes working here very exciting. I have received so much support from the beginning of the process from my team, Liverpool City Council and training provider. I work as part of a wonderful team who have so much knowledge and are always there to assist if I need it. I can't wait to see what the next 18 months in my apprenticeship is going to bring and how it will shape my future. Elanor, Business Admin Apprentice, Coroners Court
