Business Support Apprentice 2017-2019

When I finished my A-Levels, I decided that becoming an Apprentice was the best option for me, as I wanted to complete another qualification alongside gaining valuable work experience. I started my apprenticeship with the Spiral Partnership Trust in October 2017 and completed my Level 3 in Business and Administration in 18 months.


Completing my qualification allowed me to become more knowledgeable about how a business works, and the aspects involved in different administration roles within an office. I was able to complete my coursework within my working hours and had lots of support from West Herts College, my colleagues and my manager.


During my time here, I have worked with the business and leadership teams in all six of our schools, and I primarily work within the central function team. Gaining knowledge and expertise from a range of different people has allowed me to become more confident within my own ability. My finance and HR knowledge has improved considerably and it has lead me to make a decision about my future career path. I am now progressing on to complete my Level 4 accountancy apprenticeship with AAT.
