I left Canon Lee IN 2017 with three GCSE’s (more than I expected in all fairness) and I really thought that I wouldn’t get anywhere, unlike others that got really good grades so I was really unsure what opportunities would be available for me.
I then moved to Selby and after being unemployed and not in college (as I didn’t feel it suited me) I came across an apprenticeship at The Skills Network, a local training provider.
The apprenticeship was in Business Administration, and after two interviews I was successful. Once I had completed my apprenticeship, I was offered a job in the Marketing department as a Social Media Marketing Administrator, where I’ve been for a while. At Christmas I won the Employee of the Year award, for my hard work and dedication whist working at TSN which I was absolutely thrilled to receive.
I’m completely settled in my job now and have been there almost 2 years. Everyone there is amazing and supportive, but I never even thought I would be in this job, let alone any job, because I didn’t get great GCSE’s!!
Thank you so much to @marcrowland73 for such an engaging and thought provoking CPD session on supporting students during lockdown and their eventual return to the classroom. Much appreciated by all colleagues @ValeYorkAcademy.
It is really good to see that some students manage to keep up with the cooking skills. Please send pictures in of your delicious food. House points will be awarded for every entry! pic.twitter.com/1pzm…
