Ian HowellICON has recently partnered with the Soccer Excellence Coaching Academy in Swindon to provide Apprenticeships. The scheme has been a great success so far and business owner, Ian Howell has been very impressed.

Ian said: “ICON has been brilliant for my company. This has been a really great experience for myself as a company owner and also for the Apprentices taken on for this scheme.

It has allowed me to build my coaching business in different areas and also gain valuable access to new talent helping to build a stronger company moving forward. The support from the training side has been brilliant and the lads have really enjoyed the new programme which has been very rewarding; not only helping them to develop as coaches but they have also become more employable.

Hopefully we can continue to build a successful programme for the years ahead enabling young people to gain not only good experience and qualifications but also help them move into full time employment within my company. I would definitely recommend ICON to other companies as the support from Regional Manager, Tim Selway and Skills Tutor, Liam Faughnan has been excellent.”
