The training that Gareth undertook was a 12-month apprenticeship programme. Throughout his training, he was supported and taught by Training & Development Officer, Michelle Green.
Reflecting on the training he received, Gareth said: “My experience with Realise was excellent. Michelle supported me through each stage of the process, even outside of office hours. Not only was there support, but there was also knowledge passed on that was invaluable to my learning – I could not recommend Realise any higher!”
Michelle Green, Training and Development Officer at Realise, said: “Gareth was always a very proactive learner. He consistently produced a high standard of work despite being extremely busy.”
Gareth completed his apprenticeship in 2019 but has continued to keep in contact with Michelle ever since. Michelle told us: “I am still in contact with Gareth whether it be to give advice or have a chat, it is great to be able to support him!”
