An Increasing Number of Apprenticeships

Jordan, 18,  joined Terberg from a local college in West Yorkshire, where Terberg, in conjunction with the College, interviewed and assessed candidates who have just completed their sixth form education. Jordan was the successful candidate picked from all the applicants for the NVQ qualification.
