On Friday the 1st of November, Crewe based claims management company Crystal Legal Services, celebrated 13 of their apprentices and existing employees complete their formal NVQ qualifications in Sales, Admin and IT with a surprise awards ceremony that was held at Crewe Hall.
The whole day was a complete surprise for all graduates who were amazed when a limo picked them up from Gawsworth House on Friday morning and whisked them off to Crewe Hall.
50 guests including friends and family saw the graduates receive their graduation awards with special guests including Deputy Mayor Councillor Wesley Fitzgerald, Deputy Mayoress Mrs Joan McCance and MP of Crewe and Nantwich Edward Timpson.
The awards were presented by Deputy Mayor Wesley Fitzgerald and MP Edward Timpson who both gave a motivational speech regarding the importance of apprenticeships within the community.
Deputy Mayor Wesley Fitzgerald commented:
“Crystal Legal Services has done an amazing job on offering great jobs within the community and helping young individuals take their first career steps.”
Mp Edward Timpson went on to say:
“Apprenticeships are a great way to help people get the skills they need to make a better future for themselves, so it’s fantastic to be here today to witness the achievements of all these graduates.”
Each graduate received a trophy, a certificate of their qualification and was further awarded with the afternoon off to Alton Towers to continue the celebrations!
Crystal Legal Services is a growing company that is determined to put training and development at the heart of what they do.
In addition to the apprenticeship programme, Crystal Legal Services also provided work-based, relevant training to all members of staff, opening the learning programme not just to apprentices but to all members of staff in admin, IT or sales roles.
Managing Director Tony Shield said:
“The Awards Ceremony allowed us to celebrate the successes and achievement of our graduates.
As a testament to them I am delighted to announce that all apprentices who completed the programme will be offered full time employment in new roles within the company and we are planning further intakes of apprentices in the coming months.”
