28 June, 2024 11:17 am

The local media has been shining a spotlight on one of our many successful apprentices!

In a new article, the Keighley News describes how Sam Holder has taken up a position with Silsden-based dental firm, EthOss Regeneration.

Sam, one of our Level 3 Business Administration apprentices, has joined the business – which is an innovator in dental implant and bone grafting solutions – as an office administrator.

An amazing experience

The 16 year old is loving the experience, which he describes as ‘amazing from day one’, and would urge anyone else considering an apprenticeship to ‘go for it’.

EthOss Regeneration’s managing director Peter Wheeler, meanwhile, is a strong supporter of apprenticeships and says the company is thrilled to have Sam on board, and to see what he goes on to do.

Sam’s work so far has included learning all about the customer ordering process and teamwork, and he hopes to use the knowledge and skills he picks up to progress to higher level qualifications in the future.

Our Business Engagement Advisor, Saffron Kahn, says the placement with EthOss Regeneration is testament to Sam’s drive and determination.

A brilliant way to learn new skills

Thanking the company for its continued support, she added: “Apprenticeships are a brilliant way for individuals to learn new skills through hands-on experience in the workplace, combined with further training to support development and progression.”

The college currently has more than 400 apprentices pursuing training in everything from engineering to childcare.
