I wanted to improve my skills and knowledge to enhance my career. I found that by studying an apprenticeship, I was able to continue earning and learn at the same time.
I attend the college one Wednesday a month. Coming to college allows me to meet new people, especially those that are studying the same course as me, enabling us to support each other with the course. I also enjoy learning new things and gaining knowledge that I am then able to take with me in my workplace.
A typical day for me at Listawood involves following production schedules, creating reports, solving production problems, quality control and ensuring people are confident and comfortable with their duties in their workplace. On completion of my apprenticeship, I hope to continue working with my employer and increase my knowledge by working alongside my line managers. I found doing an apprenticeship was an amazing opportunity for me as I was able to return to education and continue with my career.
