  • What inspired you to do an Apprenticeship?

I decided to do an apprenticeship after doing one year at college, I didn’t do well at college and made the choice to go and find an apprenticeship instead as I wasn’t that bothered about going back to college or going to University. I also liked the idea of earning my own money and having some independence.


  • What do you give to your employer and your training provider give to you?

I am very hard working and pick new things up very quickly, I’m willing to take on new rolls and learn new skills. I’m also very punctual. My training provider gives me a lot of support and help, whenever I ask for something it gets done for me.


  • How has your Apprenticeship changed your life?

My apprenticeship has given me an insight to the real world, I love being able to pay for my own things and earning my own money. I have a lot more freedom now because I don’t need to rely on other people for money. I have learnt skills that college or university would never have taught me and because I’m working I’m constantly putting my skills and the things I’ve learnt into practice making me understand it a lot better than sitting in a class room.


  • What are your future plans?

My future plans are to carry on with my AAT qualifications and eventually become a chartered accountant.
