When starting an apprenticeship, you’re taking the first step on your chosen career path – gaining on-the-job experience whilst gaining the relevant qualifications. To mark National Apprenticeship Week, we talked to a former Training 2000 learner about their experiences, and how her career has benefitted from an apprenticeship.

Heather started her apprenticeship in October 2005, securing a position as Administrative Assistant at an employer whilst attending Training 2000 for NVQ L2 Business Admin.

Subsequently completing L2 and 3 Business Admin, followed by Level 2, 3 and 4 in AAT, Heather has since gone on to become Accounts Manager at Audas Project Management Ltd.

Talking about why she chose to begin her accountancy career with an apprenticeship, Heather explained:

“I never considered university as an option & the idea of learning & gaining work experience appealed to me.”

Heather also recommends apprenticeships as a great way to progress in their chosen career, saying, “It’s a great way to apply the knowledge you learn at college in the workplace. It also give you the opportunity to learn from other people in the workplace & ask questions to help with your studies.”

Now on her way to being a chartered accountant, Heather is working in an industry she always wanted to be part of. Heather also thanked Training 2000 for the part they played in her development:

“I found it really helped having the visits from my T2000 assessors & the support I received was invaluable. The targets agreed at each visit helped me keep on track with my studies.”
