Stagecoach celebrates first new apprentice to pass course after Covid
Stagecoach is celebrating its first new apprentice following the Covid situation which paused all trainees from taking final exams to complete the course.
Will Scott, 30, from Chesterfield is the first new trainee to pass Stagecoach’s 12 month long, level 2 apprentice programme since Covid put a pause on any apprentice qualifications. Will has been with the company since November 2018 and to complete his apprenticeship he had to attend workshops and courses once a month as well as partake in driving assessments. The work was completed in partnership with Interserve who support Stagecoach’s apprenticeship programme. Due to Covid, Will had to finish his apprenticeship by telephone, completing questions and scenarios with regards to his job in order to pass.
Will previously worked in a factory in production and driving before changing careers into the bus industry. He is now working in Chesterfield as a bus driver and looking to progress through the company.
Will Scott, said: “I was ready for a career change from my previous work and have really enjoyed completing the Stagecoach apprenticeship programme. I’m now looking forward to a long and happy career with Stagecoach.
