‘McArthur Dean opens a door to greater opportunities’
When Amy started with McArthur Dean she went straight on to a Business Administration Level 2 Apprenticeship. Before she started at McArthur Dean she came in for an interview where she was interviewed by Matt Morfitt from the Business Development Team. Matt discussed the various programmes available to Amy and from this Amy decided that the Apprenticeship Programme would be the best option for her.
Amy now works in our General Office alongside Becky and Angie and undertakes a variety of tasks including invigilating exams, creating learner files and updating spreadsheets. ”I work in an office with 2 other people and I feel that if I have any queries at all I can ask my colleagues questions. By doing so I feel more confident in undertaking different tasks. Also, if I ever make any mistakes in my job role Angie will make me aware of this. Therefore, I am less likely to make these mistakes again in the future. I feel that the feedback I have been given has allowed me to develop further in my job role. My assessor has also provided a lot of guidance and support and has helped me to achieve my Business Administration Level 2 qualification, through the constructive feedback that she has provided.” Amy has also achieved her Functional Skills ICT Level 1 during her time at McArthur Dean.
“I feel that the Apprenticeship has benefited me in many ways. I have gained much more experience in a working environment, which has allowed me to expand my knowledge and skills further. Another benefit of the Apprenticeship has been the fact that I have met lots of new people and this has helped me to become more confident. I feel that my communication skills have improved massively over the last year. “
“I would recommend McArthur Dean to others as I feel that it opens a door to greater opportunities. The process of gaining a new qualification is also very rapid and beneficial for future job roles.”
