Duke of York praises hard work of AMRC Training Centre business and administration apprentices
The AMRC Training Centre was officially opened on the 16th of October by HRH the Duke of York, KG.
The day was a huge success with the Duke of York commenting: “I’m blown away by the commitment of everybody here to what is the future”
An integral part of the success of the day was down to the hard work of our very own business and administration apprentices. On the day the apprentices handled the entire front of house duties – including welcoming and signing in all guests. The apprentices were fortunate to be given the opportunity to meet the Duke of York who praised them for all the hard work they had done on the day.
Shannon McLean, business and adminsration apprentice at Outokumpu said: “Being part of the official grand opening of the AMRC Training Centre and meeting The Duke of York was a great privilege to be a part of, and something that I will never forget. It’s not every day you get to meet a prince, and address him as Your Royal Highness. “
Contracts manager and coordinator of the business and administration apprenticeship programme, Christine Ainsbury said:
“Every one of the business admin apprentices performed superbly in their front of house duties. There were no other staff permanently on duty and they managed the whole process independently. They did themselves, us and their employers proud.”
The AMRC Training Centre recruits for business administration apprentices throughout the year, and has several vacancies for apprenticeships with high profile employers in the region commencing in November and March 2015.
