Apprentice Case Study

Quick Questions with Mariam Khan, Occupancy Officer, Jancett Childcare

I left school in July 2012 and started my Level 2 Business Administration apprenticeship with JACE Training, based in the Jancett Childcare Head Office, in October 2012. This led to me being promoted to the role of Occupancy Officer for Jancett Childcare. My apprenticeship has helped me grow in confidence and feel able to take on this role. The apprenticeship allowed me to work and study at the same time without ever feeling overwhelmed.

I progressed to my Level 3 Business Admin apprenticeship and would recommend it to anyone looking at business as a career. The level 3 course is very practical. It was mainly all coursework, with only a few tests along the way. I didn’t feel like I had the pressure of having to take exams at the end of it all.
