National Apprenticeship Week, running from 7th – 13th February, is a week-long celebration about the positive impact that apprenticeships can have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy.
JCB Finance has supported two apprenticeships to date - one in compliance & risk and the other in IT infrastructure. Both apprentices passed their qualification through a combination of learning and studying as well as real experience in their respective job roles. Both are now permanent employees who contribute to the company’s daily operations whilst continuing their professional development journey.
“We’re proud of what our former apprentices have achieved since gaining their qualifications. Apprenticeships are an invaluable way of gaining formal qualifications whilst getting real and meaningful work experience and contributing to the organisation’s success. We’re pleased to be offering three more apprenticeship opportunities in 2022 in the areas of sales administration, compliance & risk, and sales relationship management.”
- Vanessa Poole – HR Director

Megan, who achieved the Level 3 Compliance & Risk Officer Apprenticeship in 2021 recalls her learning experience:
“It was agreed with my Line Manager at the start of the programme that I would have two half days per week to complete my studies. This time was flexible and allowed me to plan my work around priorities.
Planning is key to ensure you meet deadlines, both for work tasks and your studies. I found that diarying set time scales for completing tasks helped me to stick to deadlines. Regular contact with colleagues and line management is also important to ensure that expectations are managed and workload can be shared if you have a busy period in your studies. This is particularly important during End Point Assessment as a lot of work is needed to complete this to the required standards.”
