Amberley Adhesive Labels is pleased to be part of the Government initiative for Modern Apprenticeships. We have recently recruited Ryan Samways, a local sixth former who successfully completed his A levels.
The apprenticeship is a way for Ryan to earn a wage while he trains in a real job, gaining a real qualification and laying the foundations for a successful future both for our business and his working career.
Ryan’s qualification will lead to a Level 3 NVQ Diploma (City and Guilds) in Digital Pre-Press for Print, delivered in partnership with Yeovil College. We offer a structured timetable of unit’s which allow Ryan the opportunity to learn, develop and practice the required skills.
Helping our business at Amberley Labels to grow.
These government figures regarding the Modern Apprenticeship highlight the benefits:
• 96% of employers that take on an apprentice report benefits to their business
• 72% of businesses report improved productivity as a result of employing an apprentice.
Other benefits reported by around two-thirds of employers include improved products or services, new ideas being introduced to the organisation, better morale among staff and more colleagues staying within the organisation.
Ryan is from Blandford and has a real passion for art and design. He chose Amberley Labels Apprenticeship because of his interest for digital graphics and images through completing his A-Level’s. We here at Amberley are guiding him and offering continuous development by utilising the skills and knowledge of our qualified and very professional reprographics team.
“The Repro department has given me the confidence to do well. I look forward to seeing what the future brings, and I look forward to the challenge of completing my apprenticeship at Amberley Labels”.
Duke of York encourages print apprenticeships
The Printing Charity and other businesses in print-related industries took part in a discussion led by HRH the Duke of York, KG recently on the benefits of hiring apprentices.
The duke is committed to encouraging organisations of all kinds to consider supporting, or increasing their support for, apprenticeships. His royal highness said, ‘In an industry that is rapidly changing in technology, the print industry has changed beyond all recognition but still needs skills.’
