VW Pulman

Edmund Lambe, Catering Manager at VW Pulman, said: “Employing an apprentice has allowed us to train a member of staff to the standard expected of the business.  Our apprentice has brought enthusiasm, dedication, someone to bounce ideas off and natural talent.

“Studying at New College Durham has helped our apprentice to learn the basics the methods to use, the health and safety aspects of working in a kitchen and getting ideas for menus.

“I would recommend the apprenticeship scheme to other businesses not only for the apprentice wage, but also with the right candidate you can end up with a productive member of staff.”
