February 3rd 2020 was the start of National Apprenticeship Week; this is an annual weeklong celebration of apprenticeships across England and at this time we recognise and applaud apprenticeship success stories across the whole of the country. At Peacock Insurance Services we marked this occasion by taking part in local school and college workshops to promote the benefits of an apprenticeship and how you can be get involved.
As a business we value every one of our employees, around 30% of our work force has either begun their journey with us as an Apprentice or is currently in the process of completing an Apprenticeship.
All of our Apprenticeships are completed in partnership with Coventry College. It is a structured training program where you can work towards a qualification. While completing the NVQ accreditation you will gain the skills and knowledge you need in your chosen industry. You are also able to earn while you learn, as it stands today the current National Apprenticeship wage is £700 per month.
As a business, Peacock Insurance Services offer Apprenticeships across the whole business, ranging from Administration to Accounts and even Sales. There are also options to gain full Insurance Accredited Qualifications. Train to become an Insurance Underwriter or even a Department Section Head once you have completed your Apprenticeship.
Our passion is to help develop all of our staff. 98% of our Apprentices become full time employees once they have completed their qualifications. Some of our success stories include our very first Apprentice that started with us over 10 years ago, he has developed his career over the years becoming a very valued member of our team and is now completing a CII Diploma in Insurance. This qualification is a technical and supervisory qualification for Insurance staff working across all sectors of the Insurance Industry. Another success story includes an apprentice working their way up into the Management Team. Many have become Deputy Section Heads for different Departments where they learn the skills needed to one day manage their own teams. Some will become Trainers and Mentors for other staff coming into the business whether from normal employment channels or as a new apprentice.
