Buses Coming At Once

Posted by filed under Apprentice Blog

Heard the expression about all buses coming at once? I never understood what it meant until now.

Wonderful Worcestershire Women

Posted by filed under Apprentice Blog

If I was to describe myself, I don’t think I would choose the word Wonderful. Only because it’s quite feminine and for those who know me, you’d happily see me with a pint and screaming at Liverpool FC (years and years of frustration this has caused me!). So when my boss was informed of the… Read more »

Walker 4 Worcester

Posted by filed under Apprentice Blog

Before the Worcestershire Apprenticeship Awards back in November, I had always had a passion for apprenticeships in what it has provided me and the other apprentices at The Replacement Service. Bumping into old school teachers in supermarkets, it was refreshing to hear them say how they are now encouraging more students to seriously consider becoming… Read more »

At the age 16, I knew I wanted independence and to move away from the town I had grown up in (Evesham). For those who do not know Evesham, there is nothing wrong with it but for a teenager it is very small and the idea of moving to a big city and meeting new… Read more »
