Scaffolding Apprentice Supported in Building Business Career

A former Training 2000 apprentice is celebrating after achieving two milestones in her career development.

Laura has worked at the North West training provider for nearly 5 years, gaining her Level 2, 3 and now 4 in business administration – and also earned her Higher Level Diploma in Business & Professional Administration within the Business Skills Sector in June this year.

Starting her apprenticeship rotating between different departments in the business, Laura then settled into the scaffolding team where she stayed for the duration of her learning – and still works in the team following after passing her qualifications as a valued member of the Training 2000 team.

Laura has repeatedly been recognised for her achievements throughout her apprenticeship, named twice as ‘Apprentice of the Year’ by Training 2000 staff, and also was part of a 5-strong team which won a national competition to come up with innovative ideas for digital work-based learning.

Talking about how an apprenticeship has benefitted her career journey, Laura said:

“Doing an apprenticeship provided me with a range of skills as well as building my confidence, it has taught me it’s not always a bad thing to challenge your ability. Learning the new technical skills within the diverse environment has created a solid platform for my career and personal development.

“My advice to the students receiving their exam results this summer is to invest time in research. You need to find a profession that you enjoy and are passionate about. There are so many ways to train nowadays for people like me who didn’t want to go down the university route, Apprenticeships are an excellent alternative to sixth form/ university and the fact that I will have no student debt is a very attractive in the current economic conditions.”
