Our Apprentice – You’re Hired

At Berkshire labels we are firm believers in supporting the learning and growth of school and college leavers in their career progression.  We are extremely proud that over the past years we have seen talented individuals progress and complete their apprenticeships at Berkshire Labels.

One of the latest success stories is that of Chloe, who has just completed her Business Administration Apprenticeship with the support of West Berkshire Training Consortium. www.wbtc-uk.com

Chloe is pictured above being congratulated with a Covid safe handshake from our Managing Director Paul Roscoe – a strangely normal picture that we could not have imagined when Chloe started the scheme!?

Chloe joined us in October 2019 following a gap year where she was unsure what route to take as the next step in her journey. 

Chloe was self-driven and motivated throughout the whole duration of her apprenticeship which is reflected in her final results, Exam – Distinction, Presentation – Distinction, Portfolio – Pass. She embraced the requirements of her apprenticeship alongside additional work projects and work related training without hesitation. 

Considering this was Chloe’s first experience of work, she has required very little supervision to ensure tasks are completed and deadlines are met, often exceeding our expectations by going over and above what was required or asked of her. In addition to completing her apprenticeship she has also achieved certifications in basic, intermediate and advanced Excel, a fantastic achievement. Chloe is now a solid and essential member of our team. 

She continues to evolve is now considering her next step for personal development which we encourage whole heartedly.

Here’s what Chloe had to say about her apprenticeship experience with us:

“There was a time when apprenticeships were considered the ‘last’ option for individuals leaving school and college.  But I can honestly say it was the best decision I made in accepting the apprenticeship at Berkshire Labels.  I have received great support and guidance from my mentor, and enjoyed the exposure to the business which pursuing other routes may not have. It has helped me realise what I want from my career and I would highly recommend anyone considering an apprenticeship to go for it.”
