Case Study

Lee Darbyshire at Sofology

As Inspections Supervisor at Head Office I found out about Apprenticeships through speaking to others who were already undertaking Apprenticeships with NLTG. After completing my NVQ Level 3 in Management, I progress to Level 4. Studying these qualifications helped me to become Global Inspections Supervisor, looking after all 6 of the Sofology depots nationwide.

I enjoyed the different types of tasks and assignments that were assigned to me, researching the different criteria and also the 1:1 learning aspect of the qualifications. Undertaking an Apprenticeship has helped me to offer advice and support to the depots, while also giving me clarity on a lot of things. It has helped me to become more confident in team management and to develop the thoroughness to see things through.
