An employee currently on the McDonald's Apprenticeship scheme has revealed how positive the experience has been and that she believes it will stand her in good stead for the future.
Speaking to the Daily Post, 18-year-old Charlotte Watterson said that she has picked up valuable skills during the initiative and that it has already led to career progression at the company.
"The scheme gives you more of an insight into the business as a whole which is really valuable. I used to come to the restaurant to work hard and get the job done but now I understand more about good business practices," she said.
Ms Watterson added that she was recently promoted to crew trainer, which is a position she would not have dreamt of applying for without another six months work experience.
James Hammill, head of apprenticeships and vocational training at Kaplan, wrote for HR Magazine that businesses can get many benefits by training young people through apprenticeship schemes.
