About Vanessa OLoughlin
Why did you decide to become an apprentice?
After 2 years at college completing A-Levels I knew the university route wasn't right for me. However, with good A-Levels I didn't just want to go and get a job I wanted to continue my learning and development. I also had a part time job at the time and liked working... For this reason I started looking at different apprenticeships.
How did you find out about apprenticeships?
What was the apprenticeship application / recruitment process like?
Competitive - which shows how much each apprenticeship is valued.
What is the best thing about being an apprentice?
That you learn whilst you earn!... Hands on real life experience, you get to give things a go rather than just learning them in theory.
What would you advise someone considering an apprenticeship?
To jump at the opportunity, and to fully absorb themselves into the apprenticeship process, welcoming any opportunities and challenges along the way.
