We video interviewed some of our apprentices at Rykneld Homes to find out what they thought of the apprenticeship programme and their experiences.

Here's some additional things the apprentices had to say:

Kurt Norris - National Apprenticeship Week


I started at Rykneld Homes as a Business Admin Assistant. I have been here now for 6 months. I enjoy working for Rykneld Homes because every day is different, no two days are the same and I get to do a range of tasks.

My colleagues are also great to work with. By taking on this apprenticeship I have gained experience from being in the workplace and I will also gain a Level 3 Business and Administration qualification at the end of it.

I would definitely recommend the Rykneld Homes apprenticeship programme to anyone thinking of learning whilst they work. It’s a great company to work for, has a good reputation, and they are well known. They are also very supportive towards me completing my qualification.


Shawna Gibbions - National Apprenticeship Week


I visited the Chamber of Commerce to apply for another job and whilst there they informed me about this apprenticeship opportunity at Rykneld Homes which I was interested in and applied for, and got the job!

I’ve since completed an NVQ Level 2 in Customer Services and secured a permanent role at the organisation, I am now studying the Level 3 Customer Services qualification.

My colleagues at Rykneld Homes were very welcoming and supportive, I’m given time to do my apprenticeship at work and I know that I can ask for help if I need it. You get the support you need and the people here are really supportive and helpful.


Josh Jowle - National Apprenticeship Week


I came in to Rykneld Homes at Pioneer House and asked if there were any vacancies available. I left my details and a couple of week later Rykneld Homes contacted me and told me about the apprenticeship plumbing vacancy, which was brilliant as I specifically wanted to do plumbing.

It’s a really good opportunity and Rykneld Homes support me in my work and I feel they will help me to achieve the level I can be at.

You can learn a wide range of skills and get to do on-the-job training in the real world. It’s a really nice environment to work in and the managers have been really helpful and supportive while helping me work towards my qualification.

Jaime Carr - National Apprenticeship Week


I began working for Rykneld Homes 7 months ago as an Admin Assistant in the Regeneration Team. I like the variety of work that I do and the amazing colleagues I work with, and I enjoy working in a relaxed, professional atmosphere.

From learning whilst working I have gained a greater understanding of social housing, I have also improved my IT skills.

The Rykneld Homes apprenticeship programme is great because I can learn whilst working and earning. If someone is coming straight from school it’s also good because it brings you straight into the workplace to gain hands on experience.
