To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week 2023, we take the chance to sit down with a number of our apprentices to discuss how apprenticeships work for them.
Today we spoke with Georgia Kent, who is currently undertaking her Level 3 Business Administration apprenticeship.
“I joined Keltbray as a Business Admin apprentice in 2019. The main reason I chose to undertake an apprenticeship with Keltbray was to gain hands on experience in the workplace and to help broaden my skills and knowledge. I was looking to join an established team of people working within the training environment and undertake a business admin apprenticeship.
As part of my job role, I book Keltbray employees onto training courses and NVQ’s to help equip them with their day-to-day job role on site. I also help to maintain training records across Keltbray and making sure delegate certificates are up to date. As part of my day-to-day job role, I liaise with site teams to help identify suitable training course for them. Once I have sourced a suitable training provider and booked the delegate onto the course, part of my job role is to send the email confirmation and joining instructions for their course to the Keltbray employees. I also help to manage the e-Learning training which Keltbray deliver.
Throughout my apprenticeship I have learnt to prioritise my workload and enjoy the assignments I was set to complete through my training provider.
The best advice I could give to apprentices would be to ask lots of questions and communicate with your line manager regularly to provide feedback and make sure they are getting the necessary experience in the workplace to complete their apprenticeship in a timely manner.”
