Former apprentice Josh Formaggia described the programme as invaluable. Josh said: ‘During my time at Covers not only have I learnt an incredible amount about how the business operates but I have also had the opportunity to obtain qualifications including my combi lift-truck licenses and an NVQ in customer services.’ If you are interested in becoming an apprentice for Covers, please contact Rhea Sampson on 01243 791414
