Heart of England Training is supporting Pype Hayes Golf Club, in Sutton Coldfield, with their employee training. The club’s professional, James Foster, has enrolled on a Business Administration apprenticeship.
James has been learning with Heart of England Training for two and a half months and he is really enjoying his training with his assessor Claire Johnson. James prefers this way of learning compared to college-based courses as he is learning in his workplace and the qualification is very appropriate to the office based part of his job role. James said: “I love this course. If I had known about this type of training when I left school, I would have applied sooner. Claire challenges me with my work and knows what I am capable of.”
In the future James would like to progress on to the Advanced Apprenticeship and possibly higher levels.
He would love to become a fully-fledged PGA professional. He joined Heart of England Training to gain qualifications which will give him a good business understanding and lead on to the PGA golf professional qualification.
The PGA certified golf club would like to increase the number of apprenticeship opportunities it offers. They are looking into possible apprenticeships in Customer Service and Sports Coaching.
