“When I leave Barton Peveril, I am looking to get an apprenticeship with a bank, as I pursue my ambitions to work within this sector. Barton have made me aware of different career paths and options where I can choose which role would personally suit me in the future. They explained to me what grades and qualifications I would need for these different jobs and have made the situation a lot easier for me.”
