National Apprenticeship Week – Amy’s Story

Many members of Team Acacia have studied Apprenticeships themselves, helping them get to where they are today! One shining example of this is our Director of Education, Amy Fowles, who completed Level 5 Operational and Departmental Manager Apprenticeship in 2020.

How would you describe an Apprenticeship to someone who is not familiar with Apprenticeships?

An Apprenticeship is a programme of development, it’s not just a qualification. It’s next level learning because it adapts to you and your role in a way other programmes can’t. You learn about yourself, your role and sector as well as modern society and you role within it.

Apprenticeships are flexible and adapt to meet the needs of each individual – they challenge you to reach your potential and push you to be the best version of yourself!

What encouraged you to undertake an Apprenticeship?

Initially because of the opportunity to develop in my role and do something that would have an impact on my work. The fact that I could undertake it whilst working unlike previous qualifications was a massive bonus

Has the Apprenticeship enabled you to progress in your career and / or achieve personal goals?

The Apprenticeship rapidly increased the capacity in my role and allowed me to undertake projects that directly impacted the team. Since completing it I have been promoted into higher level roles and have signed up for my next apprenticeship, which starts in April!

In your opinion, what has been the best thing about undertaking an Apprenticeship?

The flexibility of an Apprenticeship allows for learning to be modified for the needs of each individual, each employer and each sector, ensuring impact is maximised and every apprentice has the opportunity to achieve to their maximum capacity.
