Vocational Training

A shy school leaver has been transformed into a confident, self-assured employee after beginning her learning journey with the Welsh Government’s Traineeship Programme. Chloe Harvey, 19, of Monkton, near Pembroke, enrolled with learning provider PRP Training Ltd after deciding sixth form studies at school were not for her. She achieved a Traineeship Level 1 in Business Administration, which improved her communication skills and confidence. Chloe then secured a placement with Genpower Ltd, Pembroke Dock where she progressed so well in a team of administrators that the company created a new apprenticeship role to employ her.

She has since completed a Foundation Apprenticeship in Business Administration, developing organisational, customer service and IT skills which have enabled her to adapt and thrive within her role. Chloe came runner up in Level 1 Traineeship learner of the year last year and has recently progressed to a diploma in IT, to further define her skills. Chloe is now helping to train Genpower’s new recruits and is hoping to progress to a Level 3 qualification next.
