Hello! I am currently an apprentice for Applied Business Academy. My key passion in life is to have a successful career in the marketing and advertising industry and for me, apprenticeships are a great starting point for anyone interested in earning whilst learning.

I decided to choose a Digital Marketing Apprenticeship because it was the closest to what I wanted to learn about as well as learning things like Google Analytics, which I probably wouldn't have come across before. The journey so far has been really beneficial. Not only have I been getting real-life experiences that can be used as evidence, I am now learning how to communicate, deal with clients and work in a professional manner. The most interesting aspect of this apprenticeship so far is understanding the backbones of social media and how marketing is a huge part of making these platforms such a big success.

I have been a freelancer for so many years and my passion for learning something new brought me to Applied Business Academy. I enrolled myself on their IT Diploma programme and it has been a rewarding journey so far. I’ve learned a lot and through practical application of the learning, I have gained valuable IT support skills. I’ve joined the weekend class and if I find it hard to cope, I am given the option to come anytime on weekdays to get one-to-one support from a qualified IT assessor. I would strongly recommend this Level 2 course for anyone who wishes to learn the basics of IT support and how to become a first line support technician! A huge thumbs up to the team at ABA!

I was planning on not going to university and wanted to experience the world of work, expand on my skills and knowledge. Apprenticeships are a great way to get into work, to build from the ground up and it gives you a chance to earn while you learn. I gained a lot of knowledge about digital marketing during my time in ABA. It really opened my eyes to what it feels like to work in a professional environment everyday and I have improved a lot of skills over the period of time. The people are awesome and really friendly. The atmosphere at the office was fantastic; I got on well with everyone in my group. I would surely recommend it to anyone who wants to start a career in marketing.

Getting into the IT sector is a hard gateway, but if like myself, you have the same passion and determination alongside the right training provider and helpful people then it makes life a lot easier. For me, I had little knowledge and experience in IT, but as I said before I had the drive that I always wanted to go into IT. Hence when the IT diploma programme was offered to me by Applied Business Academy, I jumped at the opportunity. So far we have completed five weeks of the programme, and I have to admit for me it is going fantastically well, for many reasons. Such as there is also the virtual learning environment for me to study anytime at my own convenience, it is fun and the staff are amazing! Whilst most people think that system support and hardware is for men, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the class was a wholesome mixture of both men and women.
