Case Study

Reuben James at Plumbs Preston

I feel that I’ve benefited from the L3 apprenticeship course as it’s helped me to focus on my career. The skills and knowledge gained over the course of the apprenticeship are now being put to good use in my new role as upholstery manager. My communication skills are improving within role and I am helping to develop more effective production and training systems within the department.
I’ve recently started the Effective Management series with NLTG which has provided valuable support and guidance towards my continued professional development. I’m now more confident in coping with challenges, exploring ideas, organising time and tackling problems
