To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week, Megan, our Finance Apprentice, tells us all about her apprenticeship!
Why did you choose to complete an apprenticeship?
Since I left school, I’ve always been interested in getting an apprenticeship rather than going to college, as I think it gives you an idea on what later life is going to be like when you get a job. It also gives you work experience and will prepare me for what’s to come in the future with what obstacles I may have to tackle.
How do you think your apprenticeship has impacted you?
I think my apprenticeship has had a good impact on me, because I’ve had the chance to meet lots of new people and be apart of a working environment. It’s taught/teaching me what and what not to do when I get stuck in a work related situation and how to deal with it. I feel like my apprenticeship has helped with my confidence, customer service skills and team work skills.
Do you think that your apprenticeship has helped with your career progression?
I think my apprenticeship has helped because some of the skills I had, have improved massively. With my confidence and team work skills improving more and more while working, I believe that this will have an amazing impact on my career.
Would you recommend an apprenticeship to your friends?
I would definitely recommend an apprenticeship to my friends and anyone else who asks, because since I started mine I’ve realised what it takes to become part of a team and overcome to obstacles you face in a working community but as a young age, which prepares you massively for the future.
How have you find your time at LCG?
Whilst working at LCG, I’ve found my time to be very comforting. Since the first day of joining the Learning Curve Group, everyone I’ve spoke to and worked with have made me feel me very welcome by helping me out on things which are new to me. I’ve never felt although I couldn’t ask silly questions, as they understand that im still getting the hang of things and they’ve done everything possible to help me out.
