Undertaking the IT Level 3 NVQ whilst working at Coleg Cambria has enabled me to expand my knowledge within IT and then apply it to my work. Also, being based at the College is a great advantage as colleagues, assessors and tutors are on hand and always willing to provide any help and assistance I need.

Work Based Learning Apprentice

Undertaking the Business Administration Apprenticeship enabled me to study whilst working at Coleg Cambria.

Meeting other apprentices on corporate days and sharing our experiences was also a really helpful learning experience.

The College is a great place to come for an apprenticeship because of the vibrant environment and the vast provision available on site, there are also a wide range of future opportunities available. Facilities available are excellent including a discounted onsite gym which I regularly use.

By combining a qualification with a real working environment enabled me to establish my core skills which ultimately led me to decide on my chosen career path in Marketing.

To be recognised during my apprenticeship as Cambria Apprentice of the Year was such a fantastic achievement and really helped to build my confidence within my role.

Undertaking my apprenticeship with Coleg Cambria enabled me to gain a great deal of valuable experience, working within a wide variety of age groups.
