Peterborough College Apprentice Case Studies
Alex Bing, Professional Cookery Apprenticeship at Old Government House
I started my career at 14 and completed a full time course before progressing to an apprenticeship in Professional Cookery. Whilst I was not the strongest person in my lessons, I gave 100% effort in every task and assessment and with the encouragement and support from my tutor I completed my apprenticeship. I now work in a 5 star hotel as a Chef de Partie and I am taking part in the National Chef of the Year competition.
Jill Hendry, Hairdressing Apprenticeship at Utopia Hair Bar Ltd
I was very kindly offered an apprenticeship through Utopia, after gaining some valuable work experience in their environment and grabbed the opportunity with both hands. It meant I could be in the salon full time and be earning without having to have a second job to cover my living costs. Every single day I find out and learn something new. I have learnt how the salon is run, stock control, reception duties and all aspects of cutting, perming and colouring.
Alex Mundan, IT Apprenticeship at Display Solutions
I started my apprenticeship at Display Solutions and there was a lot of technical product information that I had to take on board at the start. A year later I am now quite confident to speak about some of the more common products we offer from memory and I am comfortable with my position and the potential prospects it offers.

Utopia Hair Bar Ltd
I would highly recommend working with Peterborough College and taking on an apprentice. The support offered from the college is of a high standard, the training within our industry is professional and up to date with the Lee Stafford Academy. Our apprentices assist the team and salon in many ways. The salon runs far more effectively with a committed apprentice. Our stylists enjoy sharing their knowledge and help train our apprentices, ensuring a strong team bond across the salon. The apprentice experience the real world of outside a college environment and learn to diversify their skills according to day to day requirements.
The Remark Group
The Remark Group has to date successfully educated four apprentices through this scheme having taught advanced skills that only the college can provide. As we feel that it is a great way of growing talent for the future as well as helping young people start their careers. The team at Peterborough College gives a low risk, excellence way of doing this with their Apprentice Scheme. In times of uncertainty such as this, a scheme that helps businesses employ staff whilst reducing the financial risk is an ideal way to support business growth. This is a unique scheme and well worth investigating further.
