Having completed my A-Levels in maths, further maths and physics at Thorpe St Andrew I joined the council working within the customer contact team and studying for an NVQ Level 2 in customer services. I chose to do an apprenticeship because I wanted to gain workplace experience while continuing to study at the same time.
I am enjoying working here and look forward to continually improving my workplace knowledge and skills. The council have given me the time and flexibility to allow for a good balance between both work and study.
Apprenticeships are a great way of getting into work as they help you to gain work place skills and complete your qualification.
In the next five years I hope to become a team leader/manager.
