Faith Roberts at North Wales Honda
National Apprenticeship Week 2021

Meet Faith.

She’d long been attracted to tinkering with all things mechanical, like engines. Working out how to make them work better, or simply work again. Unsure how to make a career of this Faith enrolled on a military awareness course at Kinmel Camp near Rhyl, north Wales last autumn (it’s run by North Wales Training’s very own Martin Craven, Commandant of the Clwyd & Gwynedd Army Cadet Force).

During the course Donna Bryant, one of Martin’s colleagues stepped in. She asked Faith what she wanted to be, where she wanted to take her career. "A technician," Faith replied. After a few discussions and reaching out to contacts, later that week Faith’s phone rings. Would she like to become an apprentice for Honda? On top of this, would she like to study for an Apprenticeship in Light Vehicle Repair and Maintenance at Llandrillo Rhyl college, 3 days per week with one full day per week at Honda?

Faith hasn't looked back since.

She told us, “I’ve been at North Wales Honda and Llandrillo Rhyl college since November and Honda pay me £300 a month. I’m very grateful I was given this opportunity and it’s all thanks to North Wales Training.” Faith told us.

Believe in the power of dreams? North Wales Training loves to help them come true. Contact us today, and let’s see if we can do the same for you.

The apprenticeship programme Faith is enrolled on isn’t one of ours, but that we enabled Faith to do what she wanted to be doing and that the people who work with us on any of our programmes, progress into their desired careers, is the most important part of what we do.

Well done Faith.
