Leap ahead of the rest with apprenticeships

Tree Frog Creative

Tree Frog Creative was set up in December 2011 by Chris and Karen Grice to help their customers grow through online business but with an ethical approach that impacts positively on both the organisations they work with and local communities.

Chris’ passion for training stems from his own background as a teenage web junior, where he truly understood the merit of work-based learning in a constantly evolving industry.

Working closely with Coleg Cambria, he encourages the company’s two apprentices to develop skills through formal training and qualifications and innovative ongoing tutoring and self-driven development.

“The Welsh Government provides funding support to cover some of the training costs and assessments which means that you’re not losing out financially while you dedicate time to mentoring your apprentice and training them in the skills required for your business,” said Chris.

“We believe that the initial time spent coaching, guiding and tutoring your apprentice at the beginning will certainly pay off as the experience and qualifications that they acquire will help your business to become more productive and competitive in the long run.

“We’ve experienced 50 per cent growth year on year since establishing the company and I’m confident that this expansion is down to recruiting dedicated and flexible apprentices that we’ve been able to train and nurture to meet the individual needs of our business.”
