Business Admin Apprentice Scott Jones Earns City and Guilds Gold Medal

schedule 23rd February 2012 by Virtual College in Virtual College Last updated on 7th July 2016

We're proud of all our employees here at Virtual College, but this week we have extra reason to honour Scott Jones. Scott was the first person to start an apprenticeship at Virtual College when he joined our support team back in July 2010. His dedication to the job and his coursework has seen him earn distinctions in all of his modules and this week he was awarded with the prestigious City and Guilds medal for excellence on his course, an award presented to only 90 people out of more than one million who complete courses every year. Now a permanent full time member of staff his hard work and personality make him a valued member of the team. When asked about how the medal would affect his career, Scott replied "To win the medal is a fantastic result for me and an incredibly proud moment; it is a great achievement and now I can look forward to the future and completing further studies."

Virtual College now has a further three apprentices in training across the organisation, using e-learning to make the most of their time on the job instead of training off site. This is all lead by our Apprenticeship e-Academy, which specialises in delivering recruitment tools and e-learning to businesses around the country to help match them with the perfect applicant. If you're interested in being an apprentice, or you're a business that's thinking about hiring, you can hear first-hand opinions in the videos below; more are available on our YouTube channel
