"This programme has given me the chance to develop my skills and enhance my career prospects."

Studying a degree apprenticeship has provided me with the opportunity to gain a higher education qualification as well as learning new things that I can implement within the workplace.

The fact that the programme is work-based learning means that I study techniques and procedures relevant to my job, which is a huge benefit to my employer.

Working within a large cohort has given me the opportunity to learn from others and share advice as well as real-life experiences. The interactive lessons are also enjoyable. You are encouraged to take part in discussions alongside sharing your own knowledge and experience.

The advice I would give anyone considering this route is go for it. The course is part time which is perfect for balancing your studies with work and not forgetting your social life. It's certainly an opportunity not to be missed.
