Introduction from past apprentice

I am Zak Warren and I started as an Apprentice with LJHA in May 2015 in Business Administration. I learnt all aspects of the business specifically focusing on Marketing, PR and Communications with a special interest in leading and developing the new Website.

Working at LJHA gave me the opportunity to develop my skills and give me experience in the workplace. LJHA arranged for me to spend time at other organisations that specialise in Communications, Marketing and PR.

As part of my Apprenticeship I had a Supervisor from Key Skills Training who visited and went through my progress measured against the key apprenticeship objectives and I am completed my NVQ Level 2 in Business Administration in May 2016. I am now permanent within the organisation as a Finance & IT assistant.

Kicking off your career with an apprenticeship is a great way to get a head start in the field you want to work in. It enables you to start working and earn a decent wage while you learn the key skills and gain the qualifications that future employers want.
