Knowsley News have just reported that The Knowsley Apprentice has now recruited 1,000 young people into apprenticeships, and that the 1000th apprentice is Leah Lewin, an ex-pupil of The Prescot School.
The Knowsley News article begins, “Leah, 16 from Huyton, started her apprenticeship at First Ark in September after completing her GCSE’s at The Prescot School. This marked the significant milestone for Knowsley Council’s successful apprentice programme.
In her role as Customer Access Apprentice, Leah is based in the Contact Centre and takes calls from KHT tenants, deals with enquiries about their rent, takes payments, sets up Direct Debits and helps with any payment queries.
Leah is also studying towards an NVQ Level 2 in Customer Service and as part of her development, she will soon be trained to deal with requests for housing repairs and the Property Pool service which helps people who want to move house.”
