The motivation behind Ratemyapprenticeship is to help young people leaving school understand their options, and to provide information about apprenticeships, which is lacking elsewhere.

Oliver Sidwell, Co-Founder of RMP Enterprise, said, “Many young people are not yet aware of the possibilities that exist for them in considering an Apprenticeship or School Leaver Programme – and yet 99% of the apprentices we have spoken to would recommend it to a peer. By creating a platform such as RateMyApprenticeship, we hope to bust myths around apprenticeships and help supply great young talent at brands including Virgin Media, Barclays, PwC, Siemens and General Electric – all of whom have apprentice retention rates of at least 85-100%.”

Chris Starling, Head of Apprenticeships at victorious Virgin Media, said: “We are delighted that we have been ranked in the number one spot for our Apprenticeship programme. Apprentices have become a key part of our talent pool, whilst allowing us to give young people the skills they need to succeed in the work environment and it’s fantastic to hear from our apprentices what they really think.”

About Paul Champion

Some have called me a leader, and a entrepreneur, they say I have integrity, presence and skills to ensure continuous improvement and success in whatever challenges I face. They also tell me that I am positive, resilient and motivating. I say, I'm just a normaI guy from Gateshead in the North of England, who started as an apprentice engineer. I have been in the right place at the right time and in the wrong place at the wrong time! I have successfully initiated and led complex organizations and situations to completion and success, and I have been in some jobs where success seemed untouchable. Mainly though, I have tried to learn everyday, help people to progress and learn the skills they need to be successful. I have had the privilege of working with some great people locally across the UK and more recently internationally in Asia, Europe and now USA, where I am lucky enough to work for where I am head of 3aaa USA. This website is just me having an outlet to talk about all those thoughts, ideas and things I learn that pass through my head every day when I face the challenge of doing business. I will also rant on about how great apprenticeships are, and how you can help change peoples lives through them. After all thats how I got to do the great things that I have done, and also I am still an apprentice everyday! All I ask is that if you find it interesting then leave a comment and share what you read. THANK YOU.
