A Little Bit About Me: I’m a 17 year old girl who enjoys playing sports, being active, going out with my friends and like any other teenager; I practically live on social media. I’ve always been better at learning while doing, so an apprenticeship is perfect for the way I learn best. In school I didn’t have any idea of what I wanted to be when I was older. I went to sixth form and studied psychology, sociology, biology and health and social because they interested me a lot.
Why I Chose An Apprenticeship: I didn’t know what occupation I wanted to have in the future, I was going to follow the crowd and go to university for nursing, but I wasn’t sure if that was something I wanted to do. I was offered an apprenticeship in Social Media and Digital Marketing at iPEGS Ltd after working at their sister company NTG Training the summer of 2014. I decided on an apprenticeship because the subject interested me and also I would be learning through practical work instead of in a classroom and I personally learn best that way.
What Being An Apprentice Means: Being an apprentice means that you are learning while working and earning money and experience in a particular field that could potentially be your future occupation.
The Future Of This Blog: Over my year-long course, I will be writing about my experiences of being an apprentice, my learning experience and the virtues of being taught via the virtual classroom. I look forward to sharing my experiences with you. Follow me and my progress here or on Twitter @iPegs.
