As we begin the Autumnal season, we mark another year of residentials successfully completed.
Our directors (and the whole team!) at Crosby have a huge passion for incorporating learning and the outdoors and together created the Crosby Residential.
This experiential learning experience is encouraged across all of the 18 standards we deliver to help build the flexibility and resilience of our apprentices, along with relevant KSBs to their standards.
We encourage our learners to “embrace the adventure” and a new style of learning – and this year they’ve gone above and beyond doing so!
With the classic English weather, we’ve had such a variety of challenges over the summer but without a doubt, they grabbed the challenges by the horns and were excellent!
This year’s apprentices all played a fantastic role in the success of the season, and we wish them the best of luck as they progress toward their Apprenticeship EPA’s!
As we prepare and look forward to the 2022 season, we can’t wait to see some new faces, from new standards too! Including the; Level 7 Senior People Professional, Level 2 Retailer, Level 3 Business Admin, Level 3 Learning Mentor Apprenticeships, and our newly delivered Leadership & Management apprenticeships!
So, let’s take a look at this year’s brilliant residential attendees:

L&D Level 5 Apprentice, Gemma said: “It’s not very often I am lost for words but one word to describe today: WOW!! I am so incredibly proud of these amazing people! Boundaries were pushed, fears were faced and comfort zones were definitely explored! They were all so supportive and as a team, we got through rock climbing, cliff jumping, extreme heat survival and then the biggest challenges like wet suit acrobatics and one to ones with jellyfish 🤣 what a day!!! Feeling very grateful for this opportunity! Thank you so much to Emma and Paul from Crosby and to Kayleigh who made us all feel safe but equally terrified! Today’s strapline “Be more Lee!!”
HR Level 5 Apprentice, Lucy, said: “I was lucky enough to attend the Residential in Wales a couple of weeks ago… What a fab experience it was!! 🤩🤩
I met some wonderful people and pushed myself outside my comfort zone in more ways than I had imagined! The trip really emphasised the importance of flexibility, personal resilience and teamwork which is something I can bring back to my role at M&B! Thank you so much to Emma Horne Chartered CCIPD and Paul Cadman 🎉😄”
Who knows, we might be seeing them on their next apprenticeship sooner than they think! 😉
