I found the course quite easy to do as it was all work related and I had plenty of help and support from my colleagues, manager and Angie my assessor. I found it much easier to study for a qualification whilst at work without having to go to college. I’m sure it will help me further my career and I am looking forward to progressing to level 3.

I enjoyed doing this course. It made me think much more deeply about my work in Warehousing & Storage and I now have a better understanding about procedures. I am pleased to have achieved recognised certificates and qualifications. I would like to progress to a level 3 qualification as I realise this can help me progress in my career.

I really enjoyed doing the course. It taught me such a lot. It was really good doing it at work rather than having to go to College after work. I learned a lot more about Health & Safety but more than anything I learned a lot more about spelling and English skills. I had a really good tutor who helped me with everything. I was so thrilled to be chosen as BMF Apprentice of the Year, it’s the first thing I have achieved as well as my qualification.

My aim is to be a yard foreman so this course really helped to develop my skills and knowledge. The thought of taking on the responsibilities of a supervisor’s job was quite daunting, but after doing this NVQ, it has made me more aware and I am more confident to take on a new challenge. Doing my project helped me to think of ways to continually improve things in the yard & warehouse.
