  • We work in what is at times an extremely challenging environment, and our apprentice has adapted quickly and well. She is level-headed, capable and quietly confident, with a very engaging manner which has made her popular with staff and students. Intelligent, thoughtful and mature, she is keen to learn and works very productively in a small close-knit team. She has established herself at CBC in a very short space of time and I am very pleased that she is with us.

  • I would like to thank you for making my choice of candidate so difficult today - I was just so impressed by the quality of each of them. The apprentice applicants had clearly been well briefed and prepared and had been proactive in finding out about us for themselves. Each of them interviewed very well, was balanced, intelligent, enquiring and enthusiastic. This says something about the calibre of people you are recruiting and the comprehensiveness of your initial training.

  • All of the apprentices were so strong, it was a pleasure to interview them.

  • We were so impressed by the calibre of the candidates that we have decided to take all 3 Teaching Assistant apprentices instead of choosing just one.

  • I feel very welcomed and supported at both my apprenticeship and placement, I feel like part of a giant family - we all get along and I do not get treated differently from any other member of staff.

  • A rewarding moment was being able to teach cricket to SEN learners and seeing one of them hit a tennis ball with a cricket bat 6 times in a row after 30 minutes of coaching on the correct way to stand and hold the bat.

  • Our Tutor is a great asset to myself and the rest of the group. She gives us professional knowledge and examples to help us complete our coursework and to put into practice at our placement.
