"After leaving school I began a fashion course but soon realised it was not for me so I drifted in and out of retail jobs. Eventually I decided that I wanted to focus and do something with my life so I started a Level 2 Business Admin course.
"I then got a job at Briggs & Forrester which gave me the chance to progress into Level 3 I had to ask myself if I really wanted to study again – but I’m so glad I did! The course at Northampton College was excellent and has helped me so much in my role as office administrator.
I definitely recommend apprenticeship courses to everyone in any line of work, there’s a lot to be said for learning alongside working. I’m now looking at increasing my knowledge of Excel, I’m always keen to push myself and keep developing."
