Apprenticeship success

Conservatory Outlet has appointed another ambitious apprentice in a full time permanent role.

James Owen, who began his placement at Conservatory Outlet in February 2017, while studying an apprenticeship in Level 2 Diploma in IT User Skills (ITQ), has now accepted the role of quality assistant within the businesses quality department.

Conservatory Outlet has worked alongside Wakefield College, local job centres and Wakefield Council to support local students and job seekers by providing work trials and apprentice roles.

Conservatory Outlet managing director Michael Giscombe said: “We’re delighted to have James with us in a full time, permanent capacity. The work he has done to help us improve our internal systems and secure 100% compliance within BSI 2015 Standard has been invaluable. James’s work really sums up why apprenticeship schemes are such valued initiatives at Conservatory Outlet.”
