On the job programme helping west Cumbrian apprentices

Twenty-two people in Allerdale and Copeland are getting support from an apprenticeship programme being managed by a leading training company in Workington.

PHX Training, which has an office on Peter Street, offers people apprenticeships in business and administration, customer service, warehousing, retail, management and team leading.

The 14 units they have to complete for the programme are assessed on the job by PHX and they study maths, English and ICT at the office in Workington.

The Government-backed training programme started in May.

Rebecca Haden, 22, Of Bannatyne Drive, High Harrington, is studying an apprenticeship in business and administration. She works 37 hours a week in administration at Workington Trades Hall.

She said: “I’d got my job at the Trades Hall and they put me forward for the course. I know by doing this course it will stand me in good stead to further my career in business administration.”

Dan Scott, PHX Training managing director, said: “This is part of the initiative to provide support for those people already in work who want to develop skills and qualifications in a certain field.

“This is all about building successful futures for the individuals as well as their employers so it’s refreshing for all concerned and a win-win situation all round.”
