Why did you choose to come to Petroc?
I was made redundant in my previous full time job. Petroc was advertising a vacancy for a Business Administration Apprentice. I applied and got the job and got the opportunity to get even more qualifications under my belt.

And what made you pick this particular study programme/course?
As I was employed as a Business Administration apprentice, Petroc thought this level and apprenticeship was the right choice for my job role.

What do you most enjoy about studying at Petroc?
I enjoy how friendly everyone on my course was. I was 20 when I started my apprenticeship so was one of the older apprentices in my class. I also liked learning the theory and relating it back to my workplace.

What do you plan to do when you leave Petroc?
I have got a new job as a School Administrator role. I will be able to use my experience and knowledge from my current job role and apply it to my new one, expanding my confidence even more.

Any advice for someone thinking of choosing the same course as you?
Having a supportive employer is a bonus. Make sure to keep them in the loop with any projects/tasks you need completing for the course. If you don’t talk to your employer, the tasks and projects needed may be harder to achieve. Turning up to work and lessons is obvious but also key advice for success.
