GC wins apprenticeship training provider award for the third year running
Whether it’s celebrating an award win or personal milestones, we are proud of every apprentice’s success.
"Take nothing you see and touch for granted as that leads to mediocrity. If designed by man, every line on the drawing serves a purpose and if you can use logic and reason to understand that purpose – no matter how obscure that might be - you will understand the designer’s intentions and thus the engineering art you hold in your hand."
This is the third year in a row when the College has been recognised for its ongoing contribution to the success of its apprentices and their employers – GC won the Training Provider of the Year in 2021 and 2020.
One of the two teams representing Gloucestershire College (GC) and the University of the West of England (UWE) in the Grand Finals have won the People’s Prize of the prestigious, annual Engineers Without Borders’ Engineering for People Design Challenge competition.
We caught up with Tyler, a business administrator apprentice at Hub8 to find out more about why he wanted to do an apprenticeship and his career ambitions for the future.
“The best thing about apprenticeships is the ability to learn from a variety of different people to give me as much exposure as possible to all elements of marketing. I would recommend an apprenticeship in Cyber co-working space as it gives you access to a wide amount of people and experience.”
“Business management and administration roles are incredibly beneficial to understanding the basis of how a business is run. This builds upon your professional conduct, customer service skills, and dealing with customer data to a legal standard. It is incredibly beneficial for the real world and can be applied to a variety of other jobs.”
"Both teams have demonstrated strong technical knowledge, as well as innovation, leadership and project management skills. It is going to be a fantastic experience for them to present their design solutions to expert judges in the Grand Final."
