British Gas - Mick Sherry
"Although Avidity usually help to find apprentices for roles, with us they have carried out all of the training and assessments on staff already employed by British Gas.
To date all of our apprentices that have signed up for the NVQ award have been successful in gaining the accreditation that they aspired to. I maintain that part of this reason is down to the way Michelle (the assessor) has managed and supported the apprentices with their work.
Overall I am very pleased that we are working in partnership with Avidity and I am happy with the relationship that I have with Michelle to manage and support the apprentices."

"The candidate supplied by Avidity was of great quality and ability. He has exceeded all of our expectations and is a valuable asset to the company. The assessor, Jackie, is a wonderful person and mentor. She has helped our apprentice through his apprenticeship, kept him motivated and was on-hand to give him support whenever he needed it.
The apprenticeship was delivered extremely well, and we are more than happy with Avidity and our apprentice.
Thank you Avidity."
JFM Associates - Fiona Razak
"Our experience of working with Avidity has certainly been a good one and they have always been careful to select candidates who would fit in well to our environment.
What is refreshing about Avidity is their ability to respond quickly to situations and whenever we have faced a potential problem they have responded immediately and with sound advice.
Our assessor Jackie has been thorough and efficient always, with a vast amount of knowledge to offer and advice at every stage.
The training appears to work well and gives the apprentice a good balance of skills."
Birmingham Youth Offending Service - Valerie Falconer
"Our apprentice came on board with the understanding she was joining a professional and established organisation I have seen her grow and blossom over the past 8 months. She has been committed to the day to day work and taken on board advice, showed flexibility and maturity.
The assessor Sharon has been a pleasure to work with, she has always been professional, understanding, approachable and places young people at the centre of her work. She is committed to making a difference and this shines through in her personality.
Overall I think it is a great programme to get young people into work."
Little Bag Company/ Fat Giraffe - G.Cardwell
"Avidity Training have provided training and development for my existing employee.
Sharon, the assessor, has been very efficient, helpful and is knowledgeable about the course that my staff member is following. When Sharon visits she is always polite and easy to talk to, spending the time needed with my staff on the course. She responds quickly to email, and is very efficient in dealing with requests from us.
The staff member being trained has already been with the company 3 years and I’m sure that as she develops through the courses there will be a noticeable positive impact for the business."
