Trainee James offered Apprenticeship after achieving vital qualifications

Name: James Parker

Age: 23

Area: Brighton

Company: The Grand Hotel, Brighton

Skills Training UK Trainee Course: English and maths, first aid and hospitality

Twenty-three-year-old James Parker was introduced to Skills Training UK by his local Jobcentre Plus.

After achieving qualifications in English, maths, first aid and hospitality he has now secured an Apprenticeship at the Grand Hotel, Brighton.

James said: ”Skills training UK have helped me achieve vital qualifications needed to progress my career.”

As part of his Traineeship, James attended Skill’s Training UK’s Centre in Brighton and undertook 100 hours of practical work experience at The Grand Hotel, Brighton.

“I have been painting, decorating, plumbing, changing lights and administrating general maintenance around the hotel. It has really helped me understand how I should present myself in a workplace, and how to manage certain situations,” he said.

The combination of classroom teaching and practical learning has helped him develop his future career prospects.

“The staff at Skills Training UK have been very helpful. Alongside the practical experience I am constantly learning and improving myself, this will help me grow as a person and push me towards success” he said.

James has now been offered a full-time Trainee Maintenance Technician Apprenticeship at The Grand Brighton Hotel.

Sonia Jackson, of The Grand Hotel, Brighton, commented: “During his work experience and placement James showed great aptitude towards any work that was given to him. He continues to learn, grow and develop new skills and is looking forward to starting his Apprenticeship in September.”
