Positive start to the New Year.
Having withdrawn from college in December 2015, I decided that I wanted to do an apprenticeship in Business Admin and so in January 2016 I visited Wheatsheaf Trust in Havant and signed up to the Future All programme. This is a programme that is designed specifically for young people that are not in employment, education or training.
My Adviser helped me to develop skills in creating a good CV and cover letter as well as completing good application and interview techniques. With support from my Adviser I applied for an apprenticeship at a local hospital. Although I was unsuccessful, I got great feedback including being well presented and how well I answered the questions. It was down to two people and the other person had more experience than me, however they were keen to employ me and suggested I may want to apply for other positions as they come up. This left me feeling quite good about myself and motivated to keep applying both with and without support from my Adviser.
Not to be deterred I continued with applying for apprenticeships and in February I attended an interview at a local community centre in Portsmouth. At first I was offered a two day trial which went really well and has since led to a full Business Admin Apprenticeship which I am delighted about.
