Profession: Retail Customer Service
Years Studied: 2020

Distance Learning was different because I could learn at my own pace, although there are deadlines, the course gives you more than enough time to complete your units, and the learner section is very in depth and easy to follow.

Profession: Retail Apprentice

The advice I’d give to anyone considering an apprenticeship is to just do it, if you’re not enjoying what you do now, just go and do something you enjoy.

I’ve learnt so many skills since the start of my apprenticeship, so many skills that I couldn’t have learnt on my own.

Before starting my Apprenticeship, I had very little confidence in myself and found it hard to do anything that involved stepping outside of my comfort zone, so being here has really helped.

I would 100% recommended this course to anyone looking into it. Being involved with the reserve team was always a pleasure, you got to play with professional footballers. Not only was this a great achievement but having the opportunity to play against professional teams at professional stadiums is something I will never forget.

The best bit about my course was winning the league in my second year. Before the season started we had a few key players leave and I don’t think anybody truly believed that we could go and win it again, but we did, and I felt a great sense of pride.”
