Bola Olayiwola

Bola started with us on a Traineeship in partnership with GMCA to support BAME candidates into education, employment, and training. It was identified that there was a very low number of BAME candidates aged between 16 to 24 who progressed into a job within the Engineering & Manufacturing sector. Bola started with us and while on programme worked on employability skills focusing on how best to represent himself while at interviews and worked on his practical skills in our Engineering workshop.

About your Apprenticeship:

When I left school, I knew I wanted to go straight into employment as practical work rather than purely academic work really appealed to me. I started on a traineeship in Business Administration first and then moved onto an apprenticeship on the same topic. Learning while earning was really important to me and doing my apprenticeship has given me so many opportunities.
