  30. 00/00/2012 Employer case study:Gabriele • Gabriele, Channel 4 • Business administration • assistant • Having an apprentice scheme is about recognising raw talent over qualifications or work experience. But ours is also about diversity. We’re proud of the range of voices our apprentices represent. Many • of them even take part as key speakers in high-level brainstorms around programming and content • for young audiences. They add • huge value to what we do.

  31. 00/00/2012 Employer case study:Miles • Miles, Bentley Motors • Junior engineer • Apprenticeships give us the • flexibility to train individuals to • meet the skills needs for the future. Once trained our apprentices become highly skilled, effective and valuable employees. We • find that the apprentices have a refreshing outlook and they often bring new ideas to the company. They can be a real inspiration.

  32. 00/00/2012 Employer case study:Sam • Sam, Jelson Homes • Bricklayer • Apprenticeships bring young • people into our industry, many • of them with huge potential. • If they work hard enough, like • Sam did on his Apprenticeship, • we can build on their training • so they become a vital part of • our company. They get a future • in construction and we get • quality employees. That’s worth • its weight in gold.
