Since starting with Leeds Building Services I have managed to achieve a level two Diploma, an NVQ qualification in maintenance operations and a level two in key skills for Maths and English. I am currently working towards my level two Diploma in Plumbing and central heating.
I started my apprenticeship in 2015, having chosen LCC because of the wide range of areas available to work in, the pension scheme and the job security that differs so much between private and public sector. I feel that the council teaches so much more than a private company ever could.
For an apprenticeship, the wage with Leeds City Council is extremely good and this is a huge advantage. There are so many benefits of working for the council.
