Celebrating our Apprentices During NAW 2023

Celebrating our Apprentices During NAW 2023

As we approach the end of National Apprenticeship Week, we continue to share some of our talented apprentices' achievements and share what they think of an apprenticeship. We have been loving finding out more about how they have put their Skills For Life into practice in the workplace.


Gemma Rooney, Recruitment Support Officer at Techsearch

"I began my HR level 3 Apprenticeship in February 2021 with cHRysos alongside the CIPD Foundation Certificate. After many years working in recruitment delivering front line support, I showed an interest in completing an apprenticeship mainly because I could still do my role alongside the learning. I decided to start my apprenticeship after speaking with a HR manager within my business who had recently completed an apprenticeship with cHRysos.

The content and the way the workshops were delivered by cHRysos were really engaging which meant we learned from each other as well as the skilled tutors and my skills coach that delivered the training. Learning in this diverse way gave me the confidence to utilise the skills and knowledge  that we learned in my role and share them with my managers and colleagues. Having to adapt to a learning environment and assignment writing eighteen years after I finished college was challenging but the support, guidance and feedback I received from cHRysos was brilliant.

cHRysos helped me to understand the ‘how’ and the ‘why’ of the people profession, giving me the tools to champion better work and encompass the CIPD core behaviours in my working life. Each unit that passed I gained more confidence and given more responsibilities at work and towards the end of my apprenticeship received a pay rise to recognise the skills and understanding an industry recognised qualification brings.

The feedback I have received from managers since starting my apprenticeship is testament to the skills and behaviours I have developed alongside the value I have added to my business. I would encourage anyone to get in touch with cHRysos to discuss their HR and L&D learning potential, the feeling of accomplishment after completing the apprenticeship is unrivalled, the sense of achievement was worth all the hard work."
