Live Borders celebrates Apprenticeship Week
Live Borders is among the long list of employers who offer Modern Apprenticeships throughout their organisation.
Reece Innes is one who has stepped up into a full-time role after completing his Modern Apprenticeship last year at Heart of Hawick.
Now a Business Support Assistant at Heart of Hawick, Reece speaks highly of the Modern Apprenticeship programme.
“Being involved in the MA programme was very good. I have met a lot of very nice people who have given some great advice and helped me which will hold me in good stead for the future,” Reece said.
“It was a lot of on the job training so I was learning and working at the same time which I found really beneficial.
“But the most significant result has been being offered a full-time job with Live Borders – it’s challenging but I really enjoy my role and the people I work with.”
Reece’s Modern Apprenticeship offered up its range of challenges, all have which prepared him for the transition to his full-time role.
“We visited the Great Tapestry of Scotland in New Lanark and following the trip, we had to do a presentation on the Tapestry for the Senior Management Team at Live Borders including CEO Ewan Jackson, that was certainly a big learning experience for me,” Reece said.
“If anyone out there is considering starting an apprenticeship of any kind, I would say go for it! It’s a great experience and can lead to some great opportunities which it certainly has for me.”
