Business Administration Apprentice

business administration apprenticeship at National Physical Laboratory and Richmond upon Thames College in London jodie

Valuable Experience

“At the beginning of my final year at sixth form I made the decision not to apply to any Universities. After doing some research I decided apprenticeships were the best route to take as I realised I could get a qualification, gain practical, valuable experience and earn money whilst doing it, which suited me better than having to paying for University fees. I’m glad I chose to do an apprenticeship as it is a great start to my career.”

Jodie most enjoys: “working in an exciting place with lots of cool things happening all the time. Even though I am not a scientist, it is great to see all of the amazing things they achieve and to see the labs they work in. Everyone at NPL is lovely and it’s great to work with such passionate people.”

RuTC have supported Jodie by: “ensuring I have a lot of contact with my assessor and am easily able to e-mail her any questions or queries I have knowing that she will get back to me as soon as possible with helpful responses. The monthly assessment is also useful as I receive feedback which I can use to improve my work.”

Lessons learnt so far: “Working as an apprentice has taught me lots of things that I can apply to real world situations which is very different than the way I used to learn at school. When our tutors come to NPL to teach us once a month we get a foundation of the knowledge and then when we go back to our offices to build on that knowledge through doing our day-to-day tasks. It’s much easier learning things when you can apply them to what you are doing at work on a daily basis.”

Jodie’s future plans include: “staying on at NPL.”
