My apprenticeship helped me, by giving me the chance to learn and earn. As well as having the opportunity to work within a professional working environment: and this was beneficial as it helped me widen my vocabulary and also my knowledge of the workplace, which contributes to understanding my job role I am currently in.

I’ve learnt assertiveness, the importance of maintaining data accurately, and also how to deal sensitively with customers’ specific needs. In certain cases – for example when discussing a resident’s Food Bank eligibility – you need to be particularly considerate and careful about confidentiality to avoid possible embarrassment to the resident.
