We understand qualifications come with time and the traditional academic route is not suited to everyone, meaning some great talented people with the right attitude to customer service and client relationships can be overlooked. So here at A-One we consider that the right personality and attributes are key to providing a career path that suits them.
We have successfully developed our A-One Academy for apprentices to begin their career in Insurance with A-One, initially developing their business administration skills with supported in-house training that leads to an NVQ qualification. This allows them to forge a career in insurance from the grass roots - be it in administration, sales or client management across our many range of insurance’s from Personal Lines to Commercial, giving them access to specific Certificate in Chartered Insurance qualifications during their career with A-One.
We pride ourselves on giving our staff the training and oppurtunities that they need to develop their careers within the business which has lead to a large number of our employees changing their career paths within the company to reach their own personal goals and help drive the company forward in different roles.
At-A-One we feel that there is no better way to get hands on training and valuable experience of the insurance industry than the oppurtunities and the busy working environment that our A-One Academy Apprenticeships provide. We believe that the training and the ongoing support that our apprentices receive from our experienced staff is second to none. Whatever your career aspirations our A-One Apprenticeships can provide you with the right career path to help you achieve your goals.
Our A-One Academy has produced a long list of success stories over recent years. This has included many of our previous apprentices being nominated for young employee awards at numerous regional business awards.
The A-One Academy has been instrumental in the development of many areas of the A-One Insurance Group with apprentices taking up key roles in our best performing teams and managing major portfolios and carrying out important tasks to help the company go from strength to strength.
Ben Bronsell one of our previous apprentices achieved the honur of winning the Apprentice of the Year at The 2018 South West Business and Community Awards, after receiving his award he said "I am immensely proud to have been chosen as the winner of this highly regarded award, it was overwhelming and totally unexpected. It’s been a great experience and has helped my communication, presentation and networking skills considerably."
"Being interviewed by the judges puts you under immense scrutiny. The judges told me choosing the winner for my category was very tough as all of the entries were of a very high standard."
"This recognition is for the whole company and not just for me. It has made me understand that if you work hard, listen and use each opportunity as an experience you can develop, grow and make improvements and would like to thank A -One for the opportunity their A- One Academy has given me both professionally and personally."
