7 March 2018
This week is National Apprenticeship Week, 5 to 9 March 2018. To celebrate the important role of apprenticeships we spoke to Natalia, the HealthUnlocked apprentice office manager about the training she is undertaking and the work she does at HealthUnlocked.
What apprenticeship are you doing?
Level 2 Diploma in Business Administration
Why did you decide to become an apprentice?
Taking on an apprenticeship offered me the opportunity to undertake real work experience while working towards a qualification at the same time.
What does being an apprentice involve?
There is an element of learning and training that mainly involves undertaking and completing course units. I can usually do these as part of my job role, or an assessor will come in and review my progress. I have also undertaken exams in English, Maths and ICT as part of the apprenticeship.
I do this all at the same time as working in the HealthUnlocked office full time.
What does your role at HealthUnlocked involve?
My role at HealthUnlocked supports the efficient running of the office, both day to day and planning for the future. I also provide additional support to HR, general administration to the wider team, and help the CEO as needed.
What is the best part of your role?
For me the best part is being able to gain job specific skills whilst working as an employee at HealthUnlocked.
What will you do after you qualify?
I will complete my current apprenticeship at the end of March. I will then continue onto an advanced apprenticeship in business administration, whilst working at HealthUnlocked.
