When I started my apprenticeship in July 2011 I was nervous, but who wouldn’t be, it’s like getting your exam results
back. After a few days I started to settle in to the routine of the Adult Learning Centre life around me (only to find it was the summer holidays coming around and that it was a very quiet time). Although working through the summer holidays helped a lot, it got me in the routine of waking up to go to work which everyone has to do, lazy days are not an option.
I began to set my own routine and found that it fitted in well once the term had started up again. The atmosphere around me was buzzing. A few students noticed that I was a new face and I soon began to build bonds, not only with the centre staff but with everyone. My assessor came to visit me regularly to check my progress and help me with any queries. The advice that I would give to anyone looking into doing an apprenticeship is to pick what interests them. In the end it is up to them to enjoy themselves and learn as they are doing it.
