Elise came to PeoplePlus straight from school and knew an apprenticeship was for her because it offered the chance to learn new skills and get real work experience

The young apprentice from Wigan has made such a good impression that she was one of just 11 apprentices honoured for their outstanding work achievements at our Apprenticeship Awards ceremony in London in 2013. Elise is the first apprentice to ever be offered a fulltime role with the employer Speedy Asset Services.

Elise came to PeoplePlus straight from school and knew an apprenticeship was for her because it offered the chance to learn new skills and get real work experience – all while earning a real income.

And she has already been proved right. Her excellent work ethic and positive attitude won her the award and a permanent job with Speedy Asset Services.

Her boss couldn’t be happier with their apprentice’s development:

Elise has exceeded expectations and is a true representation of how an apprentice can benefit from working, earning and learning.

Elise, too, is thrilled:

‘Since I started my apprenticeship at Speedy Hire I have gained a lot of confidence and have learnt a lot about myself as well as the business. I think an apprenticeship is so much better than college because you get to interact with a wide range of people from all sorts of backgrounds. I would definitely recommend an apprenticeship scheme to my friends!’
