Forbes Solicitors has recently added five new East Lancashire based recruits to its Apprenticeships Programme.
Emily Catterall, Zoe Kennedy, Kathryn Morris, Jacob Bower and Katie Philips have all joined Forbes Solicitors and are currently working towards their NVQ Level 2 in Business and Administration. In total eight apprentices were recruited across the firm.
The apprentices undertake full time work and once a month attend off the job training at the Forbes’ in house training suite, internal assessors gain the work based evidence that is needed as part of the NVQ. The course is externally verified by Burnley College. The apprentices also benefit from internal training that is provided by Forbes which includes Touch Typing and Legal Text Processing.
Joanne Pickering, Director of HR, Training and Quality at Forbes Solicitors comments, “This is a unique programme developed in conjunction with Burnley College which enables young employees to gain their first work related qualification. Many of our apprentices have gone on to have successful careers within Forbes.”
Office Assistant Vacancies, which include working towards the NVQ Level 2, are advertised on the Forbes Solicitors website – www.forbessolicitors.co.uk
