Sam Saint, 17, has secured a competitive apprenticeship at HWCP at the @symes community building in Hartcliffe. Sam is the first in an intended on-going apprenticeship programme aimed at giving young people their first chance of employment.
Sam is now part of the first port-of-call for centre visitors and provides crucial financial support and general administration. Qualifying in a year’s time, Sam will also be working towards a NVQ in Business Administration.
Sam said he was unsure what to do next at college, so he joined an apprenticeship academy where he tried a couple of placements before an adviser matched him with a business administration opportunity.
“Everyone at @Symes has really welcomed me and I’m so glad to have finally found the perfect career that suits me and my skills. This apprenticeship has undoubtedly given me great experience and built a strong foundation for my career.” he said.
