“I completed my apprenticeship in 2019. During this time, I was able to obtain skills such as self-management and a proper work ethic which is required when securing a job. I was able to do all of this while also gaining a qualification.”
“Choosing an apprenticeship at Ricardo was the best decision for hands-on experience. I balance work and college seamlessly, on track for a Higher National Diploma and future degree. Being named Apprentice of The Year by Ricardo's Performance Products Board of Directors is an honour, reflecting trust to represent the company with pride.”
“Before I joined Ricardo, I had a graduate membership for CIEEM and no other qualifications alongside my degree from university. Within my first year, Ricardo gave me the opportunity to go on multiple courses to learn new skills which I can bring to the team. I am so grateful that Ricardo has given me these opportunities as I know the skills, I have learnt will help me progress in my career.”
