[Trainers and Assessors]

I ended up working for Baltic as I was looking for a new challenge.

My previous roles are quite varied: Joiner, Truck Driver, Spot Welder at Nissan, Milkman and Warehouse Manager. I have various different skills linked to my previous job roles.

Working at Baltic

I have been working for Baltic for nearly 11 years.

I am a Consultant Assessor and I work closely with a number of apprentices. I support them in completing their assessment plans and providing pastoral care with many aspects of their apprenticeship. On a day to day basis where required I support my colleagues in relation to their job roles.

I enjoy helping my apprentices achieve their qualification and helping them start their chosen career.

My favourite memory working here is the many social events such as the Christmas parties and the Baltic's award ceremonies that the company provide.

When I first started for the company we were focused on NVQ Assessing. I then moved to PETP training for people who were unemployed and now I have moved in to the IT sector where the company is rigidly focused on.
