Cory — Gem­i­ni Apprentice — 

Why do I like being an appren­tice at Gemini?

Hel­lo, my name is Cory Mid­dle­ton and I am an appren­tice at Gem­i­ni Nuneaton.

I start­ed work­ing at Gem­i­ni on 4th Sep­tem­ber 2017 and I’ve loved every minute of it. I like being an appren­tice here because it gives me such a great career path to take. 

When I left school I failed most of my GCSE’s and I had no idea what I was going to do. I went to col­lege to work on cars and then the appren­tice­ship scheme came up at Gem­i­ni and it was the best deci­sion I have ever made. 

Being an appren­tice not only helps me learn but I also earn a com­pet­i­tive wage, which, in my opin­ion, is bet­ter than sit­ting at home. With Gem­i­ni we get an onsite men­tor with MET, Paint and Pan­el this is good because I can gain knowl­edge from their expe­ri­ences of being on the shop floor and I always know that they are there to guide me when I get stuck. I also feel con­fi­dent that I am being taught in the cor­rect man­ner. I get a week release from work every 6 weeks to go to a col­lege in Not­ting­ham, this helps me fur­ther my learn­ing and I also get to meet oth­er appren­tices who work for Gem­i­ni, but at dif­fer­ent branch­es, the col­lege is great and the facil­i­ties they have there are excel­lent. I feel safe when I’m there and I can leave the col­lege know­ing I’ve learnt all I could in that week. 

When I first came to Gem­i­ni I was clue­less but where I am at now is a dif­fer­ent sto­ry, I can con­fi­dent­ly ask my man­ag­er for a job to bring in and strip it down to order new parts. As for the future I want to con­tin­ue work­ing at Gem­i­ni and just gen­er­al­ly bet­ter­ing my skills as a mul­ti skilled technician. 

To sum up my appren­tice­ship with Gem­i­ni the best thing about work­ing here is that it’s like a lit­tle fam­i­ly, every­one gets along with each oth­er and it’s just a great team to be apart of.”
