Fleet management expert, Venson Automotive Solutions is spotlighting National Apprenticeship Week 2023 with the news that Corey Jacques, a member of its Accident Management Team, has successfully completed his Insurance Practitioner Apprenticeship. Corey is Venson’s first employee to undertake this apprenticeship, gaining CII Level 3 Certificate in Insurance and benefiting from invaluable knowledge, skills and behaviours of a successful Insurance Practitioner.
Corey’s accreditation comes as the Association of Fleet Professionals (AFP) announces it is considering introducing an apprenticeship scheme for the fleet industry. The AFP said it is currently looking into the process involved in developing an apprenticeship standard in response to demand from the members and the wider industry and called for feedback from across the sector to gauge enthusiasm.
Alison Bell, Operations Director for Venson, said of Corey’s apprenticeship achievement: “Apprenticeship schemes are a fantastic opportunity for young, ambitious individuals to advance their career path, whilst benefitting from on-the-job experience and financial security. Corey’s hard work and dedication to expanding his knowledge and understanding of the insurance industry and the accident management process has been inspirational, and we look forward to seeing how his new skills and behaviours will not only benefit Venson and our clients, but also the fleet sector.”
Corey added: “I have been part of the Venson team for just over 2 years and took the opportunity to complete this apprenticeship to broaden my experience and open up new opportunities within the fleet sector. This course gave me the chance to fast-track my progression without taking unpaid time off work to study. The experience and understanding I have gained will not only help in my current role, but will also enable me to go further and take on a broader role within Venson.”
