Star of the week: Ellie Bishop

Today our congratulations go out to Ellie Bishop who is our ‘Star of the week’ on the Pre-Apprenticeship programme. Ellie’s attendance, commitment and motivation on the programme has been outstanding, which has drawn her to the attention of her tutors and fellow learners.

Ellie has worked hard to increase her knowledge and has learnt a lot about working in an office, including Health and Safety Regulations, Policies and Procedures, office equipment and Prevent and British Values. In addition, she has developed other skills such as her inter-personal skills, IT and time management, and now Ellie is looking to progress on to the Apprenticeship. 

‘I feel good about accepting the Pre-Apprenticeship and I think it has made a huge improvement to my skills and me as a person. I feel positive for the future and excited to learn more new skills and build my knowledge. I feel very focused and I know I definitely want a career in administration.’
