As a government approved national Kickstart Gateway, The Real Apprenticeship Company has helped hundreds of employers to take on Kickstart Employees, and support them with employability skills training and more. We asked Anan of The Vale Aesthetics to share their experience with us, and here’s what they had to say:
“At The Vale Aesthetics, we have found The Kickstart Scheme very helpful for our small business. It has helped us with hiring for roles that we would not have considered under normal circumstances. The support we have received from The Real Apprenticeship Company has been amazing. They have been quick to respond to every query and have even helped me deal with the high volume of absence due to the NHS app pings. Mark is great and is an asset to TRAC. The training provided has also been great, particularly for our Kickstart Marketing Assistant. She has been able to draft a marketing plan which we plan to implement to increase the business visibility and customer base.
The Vale Aesthetics is a new business with so much potential yet not enough revenue, and the scheme has helped with the positioning of staff such as a Marketing Assistant and a Social Media Specialist which are essential for business growth. The scheme has also allowed us to put in place staff that can help with the running of the business and has helped to prevent us from experiencing burnout. Before the scheme we were doing 5 or 6 jobs each, now we are able to do 3 or 4 which is a lot less stressful.”
