ITS Training and Apprenticeships



"I started looking for an apprenticeship during my last year of secondary school. All my friends were applying for colleges but the thought of college just wasn’t appealing to me. I knew that I wanted to work and learn, rather than be stuck at college doing more exams and coursework.

"As an apprentice, my work was to manage the general administration rota. My role allowed me to learn all the various aspects of administration and I have now progressed into a more developed admin job so my day-to-day work now varies slightly due to my extensive training in rota management.

"After completing my apprenticeship I was able to progress within my career. This was because I had more developed knowledge and skills. My apprenticeship opened up more doors for me because it enabled me to learn and develop my skills while earning money at the same time! 

"Without my apprenticeship, I wouldn’t have been able to learn all the skills and knowledge of the role to a quality standard. My apprenticeship allowed me to learn thoroughly and quickly in a short space of time. Without these skills, I wouldn’t have been able to progress within my role and learn new job roles. I gained the skills to be able to learn multiple rotas, which not everyone does, meaning that I am a highly trained administrator.

"I believe that out of my apprenticeship, I achieved a happy career, well-developed relationships with my colleagues which made working more enjoyable and I was able to gain my own independence. My apprenticeship taught me to take responsibility for my actions, how to behave appropriately in a working environment and how to be independent within myself and within my job role.

"If I hadn’t completed an apprenticeship, I wouldn’t have the skills that I currently have and I wouldn’t have as many possible career paths available to me. My apprenticeship has enabled me to progress quicker than usual and get on the career ladder straight away without having to apply for jobs without any experience or knowledge."
