Young, Ambitious and Learning on the Job

Kris came to E-Achieve, after spending time in the Job Centre looking for a new opportunity that would allow him to develop his skills and experience. When his Job Centre Adviser mentioned the possibility of him completing a traineeship at E-Achieve, he was excited by the prospect.

“I was keen to try something a bit different and liked that I’d be completing my work experience at a brand new company, UKPI”

During his traineeship, Kris was given the opportunity to learn about company functions and develop skills in customer service. He found that the course helped him grow in confidence when interacting with customers and upon completion of his traineeship; he was offered a contract with UKPI.

“I started working for UKPI doing field sales, business to business. I was also tasked with developing leads for Workplace Learning programmes. It was a great new challenge.”

When generating leads, Kris realised that Workplace Learning could be a great way for him to continue developing his skills. He enrolled on a Level 2 Workplace Learning Course and was able to further develop his skills in Customer Service and Business Administration.  Kris is now one of the top performing employees at UKPI.

“Workplace Learning gave me the opportunity to become more confident when speaking with customers. It also gave me a greater awareness of sales techniques and how to approach customers”


Kris described his tutor as “spot on” and said that she was helpful and supportive throughout his course. He felt that tutor support encouraged him to develop other skills such as self-confidence. He has also had the opportunity to meet lots of new people.

“I’ve definitely developed my rapport building skills. I’ve met so many people and learnt so much, it’d be impossible not to”

Kris is hopeful about the future and puts this down to the skills and experience that he has gained.
 

“My current career goal is to eventually become one of the team managers. I am proud of myself for becoming a top seller and I am confident that I will be able to reach my goal”
“E-Achieve has been great. I’m definitely glad I came to them for a course and have recommended it to lots of people. My experience has been friendly, fun and a great learning opportunity.”
