Business Administration Apprentice

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

Industry Preparation

“I chose an apprenticeship because it gave me the opportunity to learn skills whilst putting them to practice in a real life environment, whilst getting paid. This gives me the opportunity to prepare myself for a career in the industry and be able to develop an independent lifestyle in order to suit this career choice. The apprenticeship programme gives me a choice of progression once I have completed the course, such as university, a higher level apprenticeship, or a full time job.”

Emily most enjoys: “the independence that I am being given in order to complete the tasks to gain my qualification.”

RuTC have supported Emily by: “ensuring I meet regularly with my assessor for one-to-one’s to look at the work I am completing and how it is relevant to the qualification specifications. This means that even in the early stages of my apprenticeship I am already seeing progress to completion of the course and areas to strengthen my skill-set. This is done in an enthusiastic manner, meaning that the academic side of the course is also enjoyable.”

Lessons learnt so far: “I have learnt about different methods of communication used within the business environment and how to develop and improve my communication depending on the audience. I have also learnt about the different systems used within the company and how they are used to help with the running of the company.”

Emily’s future plans include: “to go to university to develop the qualification I will have gained during my apprenticeship, meaning that I can work at a higher level. After university I will plan to work somewhere like NPL in order to use the experience that I have gained whilst working here.”
