As part of National Apprenticeship Week 2019, we are highlighting the impact of Apprenticeships by participating in the #AskAnApprentice initiative. We have asked learners who are currently on our Apprenticeship Programme to answer key questions, in hope that we can inspire the prospective learners to kick-start their career.
Today we have featured Jordan, who is currently completing his Level 3 Team Leading Apprenticeship at PQMS Training Ltd.
Who or what inspired you to complete an Apprenticeship?
I wanted to improve my work efficiency in my new role. I wanted to learn new techniques involved with Team Leading and Management.
What do you enjoy the most about your role and why?
The every day challenge. Every day is always different. Working with my team and achieving results we set out to achieve.
How do you think an Apprenticeship has improved or opened up your career options?
The apprenticeship has taken me from strength to strength in my role due to the fact I now know more management techniques.
What advice would you give to other people considering an apprenticeship as a route into employment?
An apprenticeship is a great way to learn new skills whilst also performing your day job. It even helps makes your day job easier as the tasks set for the coursework is work you need to do as part of your day job.

Learning a new skill and having that certificate/qualification behind you for future career benefits.
