• Testimonials and Case Studies

Mark Jones

Director, Hymid, Woodland Close, Torquay. www.hymid.co.uk

“After a three year apprenticeship journey, both Hymid and South Devon College are rewarded with the development of a talented young engineer with a bright future who continues his education to HNC level.

This is a clear testament to the mutually beneficial association by a committed company and South Devon Colleges’ professional engagement in the apprenticeship process from candidate recruitment, through education, monitoring and assessment.

Equally we recognise our apprentice’s hard work and dedication to his chosen vocation. Opportunities presented by the Company have been seized with enthusiasm and he is rewarded by a full complement of distinction grades and an engaging role within Hymid”.

“As a business, we believe in training and developing the potential of all of our staff at every level. The apprenticeship scheme offers staff the chance to work in a busy environment as well as getting expert training and support from South Devon College, it is a fantastic way to start a career in hospitality and get a qualification that is widely recognized. I have nothing but praise for the scheme, and the support which the staff and the business gets from the college. We are very pleased to be a working partner with SDC, and look forward to training many more of our staff and offering new opportunities to work in hospitality.”
