Andrew Milne, TLH Auctioneers
After attending Mantra's open day Andrew booked on for a 4-week Level 1 course in warehouse and storage. He learnt new skills including pedestrianised pallet truck training (PPT) and First Aid, he brushed up on his english, maths and IT skills, as well as CV building and interview techniques.
TLH offered Andrew a 6-week Pathway to Apprenticeship programme covering all aspects of auctions, billing and PPT. This gave him the opportunity to experience a busy working environment and it also gave TLH the chance to assess how well Andrew would fit in with the team.
‘After 6 weeks TLH offered me a full time apprenticeship and I now attend most auction days which free’s up staff to do other tasks.’
Andrew was first put on customer bills and invoicing and then progressed to helping set up the auctions, meeting tight deadlines.
