“My confidence and interpersonal skills have grown a lot by simply being around colleagues. My technical skills have also developed massively”

Before attending City College Norwich, I studied my A Levels at Sprowston High. I chose to attend CCN because I didn’t want to go to university, but also didn’t feel confident going into a full time job straight away, so an apprenticeship was perfect for me.

This is the first time I’ve undertaken work-based learning, which requires a lot more independent learning and using my own initiative in my daily work, rather than relying on a teacher.

Teamwork & confidence

Attending City College Norwich has given me a lot more confidence in what I can bring to a team, and how my work can directly benefit my team. I have been able to explore a range of industry elements which I would not have been able to if I had gone into full time employment.

Technical skills

My confidence and interpersonal skills have gorwn a lot by simply being around colleague. My technical skills have also developed massively because of my daily work.

Voluntary work

In my spare time, I volunteer with war refugees in Norwich, mainly working with young children who need support with their language skills and school work. I also work closely with teens and young adults who face the same issues due to traumatic pasts, this involves helping them to understand the English language and culture, but also practical skills, such as paying bills, and using public transport.

Future plans

Once I’ve completed my course at CCN, I hope to go into a full time job in a similar industry, with the long term aspiration of working in user experience or website design.
