PCH celebrates National Apprenticeship Week
At PCH we’re proud to support our apprentices and give them opportunities to take their first steps on the career ladder.
Apprentices Rich West and Danii Revell have both recently completed their End Point Assessments achieving an overall Pass mark, whilst impressively gaining distinctions in elements of their assessments.
Danii completed her Customer Service Level 2 qualification with our Business Support Team, which helped her to secure a fixed-term Administration role with our Housing with Support Team earlier this year.
On her apprenticeship, Danii said: “I’ve really enjoyed my time working with PCH to do my Level 2 Customer Service NVQ. It has been such an amazing opportunity and experience.
“I’ve had a wonderful time and discovered a true passion for customer service and administration.”
She added: "I am extremely proud to continue my journey here, I respect everything we do and stand for within the community. I am so honoured to be a part of an organisation which are a part of changing people’s lives.”
Fellow apprentice Rich, who completed a Business Admin Level 3 apprenticeship within the Development Team will now be leaving PCH to pursue his career with a new employer and everyone at PCH wishes the very best in his new role.
Awesome foursome named as finalists
Four of our fabulous apprentices were named as finalists at this year’s Building Plymouth Construction Apprentice of the Year Awards 2022 Awards.
David Philips, apprentice painter and decorator, was nominated by PCH along with City College Plymouth for his involvement in the redecoration project at the YMCA Honicknowle. David led a team including fellow apprentices and HR’s Danni Houston and Fliss Gaskell in painting three rooms at the centre. The rooms are used as classrooms and for counselling sessions. The update made the rooms much more welcoming, and the YMCA team were very pleased.
Mason Hughes and Bailey Doyle, both previously apprentice gas engineers, were nominated by Focus Training and PCH for their high standards of dedication and work ethic throughout their apprenticeships.
Steve Price, apprentice plasterer was also named as a finalist after earning himself second place at the national WorldSkills UK Skills Build competition late last year.
