Benefits of gaining work experience:

  • You’ll learn from and work alongside experienced people
  • You’ll develop skills, make contacts, and learn more about the kind of jobs you’d like to do
  • You will develop vital skills that are transferrable to a range of roles when you move into work

"During my Level 2 course I won the apprentice of the year award. This was a massive honor for me as Entrust had noticed how hard working I was and how much I cared about my job and the passion I had for helping the children I worked with."
