Hello, I Am Sophie

Tell us more about your experience

I decided to do an apprenticeship because of the opportunity to learn on-the-job with an employer whilst studying for a fully funded degree to allow me to build on both my experience and skills to enhance my CV. My new daily role includes coordinating and managing stakeholders and a range of tasks for multi-million pound projects. The highlight of my apprenticeship so far is definitely my achievement of my Project Management Qualification with the Association for Project Management.

The hardest part of my apprenticeship so far has been managing the degree aspect, alongside the day job, but my project managers, line manager and the university have been a great support network!

My one piece of advice would be – ask as many questions as you can. Even if you think they are silly, this allows you to fully understand topics and tasks which have been set for you.
