Apprentice: Bryoni Mc Dade
Framework: Intermediate Apprenticeship in Marketing
Employer: Jungle IT
I started my apprenticeship after finishing sixth form and I feel I have gained new skills and developed existing skills further.
One of the skills I feel I have developed is being keen to take on new challenges in the work place. When I am given a task to complete that I have never encountered before, I will take the task on and work through any problems I encounter. For example, for the new company website I had to make images on Photoshop and this was something that I had never done before.
When I was leaving sixth form I was unsure what my next step would be but I knew that I wanted to be in an apprenticeship. I was still deciding the career path that I wanted to do when I started applying for apprenticeships through Leeds City College. From doing this apprenticeship I have realised that this is the career path that I want to continue on.
I thoroughly enjoy the job that I do and this motivates me to excel in this career. One of my personal achievements has been updating the website. It was my job to get the content for the site, create the images and manage the customer product lists.
