Before beginning his apprenticeship, Liam completed a Level 3 BTEC in IT at New College, Pontefract. He had heard about WDH’s apprenticeship scheme through friends, and seen adverts in the local newspaper.

Liam said: "Thanks to my apprenticeship I have been successful in my quest to gain confidence in IT and what I do. It has also given me valuable experience of the workplace. I successfully completed the programme and now I am an IT Customer Support Officer."

Beth said: "My apprenticeship has opened up good opportunities for me. Completing my apprenticeship gave me the confidence to apply for further roles at WDH, and I am now working as an Corporate Support Officer. It also gave me the foundation to apply for other opportunities that WDH has to offer, such as the Leadership Extended Achievement Programme and the Community Leadership Programme."
