Michael Wyld - Learner

Michael Wild, 20, from Preston has engineered himself a top career through an Apprenticeship at Royal Mail delivered by Lancashire based training provider Training 2000.

When leaving school Michael realised he wanted to learn a trade whilst studying for an academic qualification, as opposed to the traditional route of going to college and gaining A Levels.

Illustrating his commitment to the course, Michael completed his Apprenticeship three months early of the Royal Mail completion target, resulting in him being offered a permanent role within the engineering department.

Michael comments: “I really feel that doing an Apprenticeship was the best route for me to take after I left school. It meant that I got real hands on experience whilst gaining the relevant qualifications. I enjoyed both the academic and practical aspects of the course which encouraged me to work harder.”

Alan Wright, Michael’s line manager at Royal Mail says: “Michael is one of the hardest working apprentices we have had with us at the Mail Centre. He really impressed us with his maturity and strong work ethic. This is demonstrated through the fact that he now has a permanent position with us. The Apprenticeship gave him the opportunity to get to grips with the theory behind the practical work he was doing.”

Martin Eatough, Engineering Programmes Director at Training 2000 comments: “Michael has done extremely well throughout his time at Training 2000. Going on to secure a permanent role at Royal Mail proves how valuable his Apprenticeship was”.
