Lauren applied for her apprenticeship through SWAC back in 2015 and completed a Level 3 Business Administration apprenticeship at Media Plant Ltd in Swindon.
Lauren explained why she enjoyed her Business Administration apprenticeship “It was great to learn and earn money at the same time. It was also good to develop my personal skills as well as understanding and learning different skills and knowledge required to succeed in business.
Lauren is still employed with Media Plant “After finishing my apprenticeship in 2015, I continued within the same role at Media Plant, and I am now at a higher level with additional responsibilities. I am pleased that I am still working at Media Plant and it has been great to develop my role and skills with the same company.”
Lauren explained how the apprenticeship helped within her current job role “Being an apprentice has helped me to develop skills that I may not have learnt coming into the job just as a normal employee. It also really helped that I had support at the beginning in case of any problems, it was good to know that I had someone I could contact and ask questions as well as the support I got from Media Plant.
Lauren is keen to promote apprenticeships and SWAC to others “To anyone considering doing an apprenticeship with SWAC I’d say, go for it! I really think it provides you with such great experience and I was so happy to get a full time job too!
Lauren’s success at Media plant and her progress has led the business to take on another apprentice who started in his role in July 2018. We will watch this space for further successes at this great company!
