After excelling within an accounting apprenticeship, Serena has discussed her experiences which have led her to complete her course and how she has developed her skills within the workplace.

Starting in 2014, Serena has since completed AAT Level 2, 3 and 4 within her apprenticeship whilst working at Future Technology Services Ltd, based in Blackpool.

Serena made the decision to go down the apprenticeship route as she was keen to learn new skills whilst in work.

She added, “The idea that I could gain a qualification and also gain experience on the job seemed more appealing to me than just having the qualification.”

Gaining experience whilst also gaining new skills provided the opportunity for Serena to build an understanding behind the tasks she was carrying out as part of her role and take ideas from the classroom directly back to her employer.

Serena has combined her professional achievements with a passion for music, singing

Keen to encourage other young people to take up an apprenticeship, Serena said:

“I would definitely recommend apprenticeships to other young people as you are able to gain real-life work experience in the field you are studying whilst also gaining a qualification.”
