Hello, I Am Ava
Tell us more about your experience
I am dyslexic and learn better from doing a job hands on
– I knew university wouldn’t suit me but felt a lot of pressure as everyone
around me my age was doing just that! I’m so glad I took this apprenticeship!
As part of my day-to-day job, I source venues, hold team
meetings and create fun activities for the floor to take part in. I also go to
shoots and help direct when we are filming – I edit, create and communicate
with others to bring events together. Because of this I have learnt a lot of
key skills I wouldn’t have been able to otherwise! The most exciting project
I’ve worked on was at Cowdray House Estate, and my proudest moment so far has
been creating the goggle box reel for the AA.
Channel 4 have been amazing in supporting me with my
dyslexia – I have been able to install the Grammarly app, and they regularly give
me tasks to explore and so many more opportunities. An apprenticeship is great
for those like me who want to learn on the job and experience work first hand!
‘’Go for it!
You learn so much and it’s really rewarding and gives you better experience in
