afPE, March 2013**

**The expectation is that this requirement will be complied by 2015

Case Study:

“We are delighted with how well our apprentice, Ben, has developed and continues to perform. He is polite and well-mannered but also very determined and focussed, as evidenced by the huge progress he has made during his time with us. He is a credit to apprenticeships in general and living proof of how they can provide significant opportunities and routes into employment. Needless to say, as soon as Ben’s apprenticeship is complete we will be offering him a full time position to stay with the company. We hope that he will continue to develop in his new role whilst at the same time utilising and building on the skills learnt in his apprenticeship programme.”
