New Apprentice Joins the Corporate Team at Magna

28th July 2016

Magna has taken on a new apprentice as part of its bid to support young people who want to get into the world of work.

Bentley Stockley has joined the Rotherham-based visitor attraction on a Level Two Apprenticeship in Business Administration. He will work alongside the corporate team to learn on-the-job skills whilst studying with RNN Training - part of the RNN Group formed from the merger of Rotherham College and North Notts College. Bentley, who is 16 and lives in Swinton, brings the team of apprentices at Magna to five. The science adventure centre and events venue also employs young people working towards qualifications in corporate events, electrics, technics and maintenance. Bentley, a former pupil at Swinton Community School, said: -I've been to Magna a number of times over the years as a visitor so it's exciting to now be working behind the scenes. It's lively and interesting and I'm already learning a lot, plus I've had great support from the team here. Darren Percival, operations manager at Magna, said: -Bentley is settling in well and learning the ropes quickly, and we really appreciate the fresh ideas and enthusiasm that he and our other apprentices bring. -Not all young people want to continue with full time education, so we're happy to be able to support those who want to pick up skills and experience alongside a qualification. Magna, which is housed in the former Templeborough steelworks near junction 34 of the M1, is an award-winning visitor attraction and hosts regular school visits. As well as organising its own events, the venue hosts corporate events for brands including Mercedes, Royal Mail, Kia Motors and HSBC.
