#WorksForMe: Joseph's Story

To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week 2018 we are asking some of our past and present apprentice's how their apprenticeships have benefitted them. First we're speaking to Joseph Pearson who has recenetly completed his Level 2 Business Administration apprenticeship.

“I have found that since completing my apprenticeship my confidence both inside and outside work has increased rapidly. I now have the confidence I need to progress in and out of the workplace.

Whilst working under an Apprenticeship programme this has allowed me to not only gain my Business Administration Level 2 award but also my ICT Functional Skills Level 2. Both these Level 2 awards will help both in my current employment or if I decide to leave my current employer they will certainly help me in the very congested job market.

The best part of an apprenticeship though is the fact that I earn while I learn on the job. Being the only one of my generation of my family not to go University is fine with me as I don’t have any Student Debts over my shoulders. It’s great to think that whilst I am studying my apprenticeship I am actually earning as well!”
