I will walk 500 miles…..

The 3aaa Maidstone Academy have made yet another placement, in the form of Ryan Clarke, a Digital Marketing Level 3 Apprentice. Ryan was referred to 3aaa by a friend who was already working as an Apprentice. Over the course of a few weeks Ryan was invited in for an interview, attended a number of employability days to harness his interview skills, and then was invited to interview with the RAP, an interior design company in Maidstone.

Ryan was due to sign all of his paperwork with 3aaa on the hottest day of the year, and with no other way of getting to the Academy, Ryan walked 11 miles in the blistering heat to avoid disappointing anyone. A few days later Ryan carried out a taster day with his employer, where his talent for blogging was unveiled. The interviewers were more than impressed, and offered them the job on the spot!

Maidstone’s Apprentice Intake Executive, Chloe Britton, could not be more proud of Ryan, “Ryan’s dedication and motivation are an inspiration, we wish him the best of luck and know he will do amazingly well with RAP. Well done on the job Ryan!”

You’ll now find a 3aaa Academy in Bedford, Birmingham, Blackburn, Bradford, Brighton, Bristol, Cambridge, Chelmsford, Croydon, Derby, Gloucester, Guildford, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, London, Maidstone, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Newcastle, Northampton, Norwich, Nottingham, Oxford, Peterborough, Reading, Romford, Sheffield, Southampton, Swindon, Tamworth, Warwick, Watford, Worcester and York.
