Apprenticeship success…

Jay Ayton started working with a local North East based company called Foresight in September 2021. Jay is completing a Level 3 Digital Marketer apprenticeship with us here at ITEC NE. Jay is going from strength to strength and is enjoying his time on programme and has become a valued member of the team – Jay thrives on learning whilst he is earning a wage. The varied role suits Jay and Foresight has enjoyed having a young person willing to learn and try new things – adding skills to their business. 

Jay said “I’ve really enjoyed my apprenticeship so far. I find it challenging but rewarding to be involved and learn in a real working environment, you’re able to put yourself into new challenges and situations that you wouldn’t usually see yourself in and I think that helps me develop new skills”.


Employers can benefit from end to end support from the Business Development Team at ITEC NE enabling them to recruit, train and retain excellent apprentices enhancing skills in the workplace.

Jay’s tutor, Andy Bremner said “Jay started his apprenticeship when he was only 16 and has produced some of the highest quality work I have seen from a learner. Jay has been an outstanding student from the word go and he has gone above and beyond in terms of his role and his work as an apprentice always bringing enthusiasm and drive to his work and he should be incredibly proud of what he has achieved so far and I look forward to see all of the amazing places Jay will go with his career!” 

“Jay has been a welcome addition to the team here at Foresight and has really impressed us with his creative contribution and all around work ethic. He has worked really hard to develop his skills in a whole host of creative applications, and established himself as a safe and reliable pair of hands.” – Barry Braley – Director of Foresight eLearning and Creative Ltd.

We look forward to seeing how Jay progresses in his future and value the support from employers like Foresight.
