Commitment to Youth with CII

Back in October, TRS’s apprentices attended the Apprenticeship Live in Bristol organised by the CII and Insurance Times, with the initiative to encourage young professionals into the sector. With TRS’s major interest with work experience placements and apprenticeship schemes, the company has teamed up with local authorities, academies and the CII to increase awareness and shape the future workforce. IMG_5019

Most recently, directors at TRS were invited to be filmed for the Connected Schools and Businesses Programme. These interviews offered insight into personal experiences, where TRS see the future and how their strategic business planning continues to include offering numerous opportunities for the younger age range. Due to TRS’s commitment to youth, they have been highly recognised as Apprenticeship Ambassadors, with this years schedule already including trips to the Houses of Parliament, presentations within schools and colleges on higher education choices, main sponsors for Skills Shows and continue to facilitate the company’s own growth of apprentices with the proposal to expand on those placed within TRS.

TRS Wins The Double

The Replacement Service attended the Worcestershire Apprenticeships Awards 2015 at the West Midlands Safari Park, supported by the Worcestershire LEP and County Council. TRS employee, Victoria Rawlings, had been shortlisted for the ‘Higher Level Apprentice of the Year’.
The event hoped to continue to raise the awareness of apprenticeship schemes and the positive contributions that the younger generation are having on the workforce. The award categories hoped to acknowledge the businesses that have strongly supported the scheme and benefited greatly from and also the individual apprentices themselves, that had shown an outstanding occupational progress and theoretical ability.The host, BBC Morning News Presenter Steph McGovern, introduced the 13 different awards with a brief summary of why each finalist had been selected. Organisers of the event had mentioned that this year had produced an increase in apprenticeships across the county, producing some excellent candidates and some stiff competition.
With guests enjoying a 3 course meal and drinks, the last skint of awards for individuals were announced, including Victoria and TRS’s category. Winners of the Intermediate, Advanced and Higher levels are then put forward to the Worcestershire Apprentice of the Year.
For the Higher Level category, Victoria’s achievements were addressed including her completion of Level 3 qualification with TDM Wyre Academy and starting her Level 4 with the Oxford College of Marketing. Since joining TRS, Victoria has introduced new innovative approaches and contributes as part of an editorial board for a national insurance publication. It was announced that Victoria had won the award and awaited to hear the outcome of the overall Worcestershire apprentice of the Year sponsored by Worcester Bosch Group.
TRS are happy to announce that Victoria won this award, in an interview with organisers afterwards, Victoria stated:

This apprenticeship has given me what higher education failed to do

From winning both awards, Victoria has been overwhelmed with messages from fellow finalists and businesses within the county. Some 5 hours later, she has already been penciled in to talk at high schools in the area.
TRS would like to congratulate everyone involved for producing a great event, the applicants and Worcestershire for it’s continuing successes.
