"I decided to become an apprentice as I liked the idea of learning new skills alongside gaining valuable work experience"

Lloyd Tidder

Customer Services Apprentice

Lloyd left college with good GCSE and A level results but knew that the class room environment of full time higher education wasn’t the path for him. He wanted to learn the job through real work experience.

Everyone who knows Lloyd always refers to him as a “people person” so it was unsurprising that Lloyd was interested in a career in customer service. Lloyd was taken on by Hull-based “Language is Everything,” a translation agency offering interpretation services. His duties ranged from meeting and greeting on the reception desk, general administration to arranging telephone interpretation appointments and meeting venues.

Lloyd says “I decided to become an apprentice as I liked the idea of learning new skills alongside gaining valuable work experience. Also, the opportunity to achieve a level 3NVQ leading to possible permanent employment really appealed me.”

On successful completion of his NVQ training, Lloyd became a permanent staff member at “Language is Everything” and is now studying a Foundation Degree in Business Management on a part time basis at Hull College.

His duties ranged from meeting and greeting on the reception desk, general administration to arranging telephone interpretation appointments and meeting venues. This was a level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship, with the technical element of his studies delivered by Hull Training, to achieve his qualification alongside his work.
