Future Apprenticeship Foundation Success for Harvey

Date published: 03 January 2024

Harvey Walsh started with Rochdale Training on the Future Apprenticeship Foundation in February 2023.

The course supported him in getting ready for an apprenticeship while allowing him to gain valuable work experience in a sector he’s interested in, while also improving his employability skills, English and Maths.

Harvey developed his skills and confidence after a short period and started his work placement with Rochdale Council in the work and skills team.

His placement employer, Amanda Huntbach from Rochdale Council said: “Harvey is a wonderful young man and has a bright future ahead of him.

“He is always on time, normally early, very reliable and able to follow instructions and undertake tasks with little supervision. He has excellent computer skills, is organised, and can prioritise.

“He looks very professional and comes across in a polite and professional manner.”

Harvey said: “It was a brilliant course. The experience confirmed this was the sector for me and I was eager to apply for administration positions after my work placement.

“The support from the tutors and the staff is outstanding, everyone at Rochdale Training creates a safe and friendly environment, and I am really comfortable here.

“I have now progressed on to a Level 3 Business Administration apprenticeship with Rochdale Training and work as a technical support officer in the revenue and benefits department of Rochdale Borough Council.

“Being on the Future Apprenticeship Foundation not only allowed me to develop workplace skills but also life skills. I would recommend this course to others who need support and struggling to figure out what to do in life.”

Habiba Khatoon, work experience co-ordinator from Rochdale Council, said: “We are pleased we have been able to accommodate the work placement. Harvey was able to spend time working within our organisation before applying for an apprenticeship role with us. Congratulations Harvey!”
