Exciting Opportunities

Hi All!

This past week I have really been settling into my new job role taking responsibilities for certain duties such as ringing our learners and employers for feedback to improve our quality of service.

We got stuck in to Comic Relief Red Nose Day helping Comic Relief to raise a whopping £71,308,475!!!

On Wednesday I went along to the Chamber for the first time for their monthly communication meeting..it’s official and a huge deal for us as a business moving forwards in to the future that we are on the Register of Apprenticeships as a Training Provider! Happy Days

I had my first appraisal yesterday with my Manager, she said I was settling in great at CWCCT and an asset to the team which is always nice to hear!Red Nose Day 2017.jpg

My Journey So Far..

Hi all and welcome to my first blog!

I’m Megan and I’m currently doing a Level 3 Apprenticeship in Business Admin with Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber Training, they’re not only my training provider but also my Employer. I have been here for 6 months so far and have learnt so much and met great friends. The Business world was completely new to me coming from Retail working unsociable hours and feeling like I was going nowhere. I went for my first interview at Chamber Training for a different vacancy I had seen on the National Apprenticeship website then the following day a Recruitment Advisor phoned me inviting me back for a second interview for themselves, I felt so privileged! I remember thinking how modern the building was and how professional the staff were so of course I jumped at the chance!

Like any first day at a new job I was nervous but they all made me feel so welcome and at ease. The training was so informative I could have easily slept for a week! CWCCT provided me with many new skills such as; Emergency First Aid at Work and Microsoft Excel making me a lifesaver and a whiz kid on Excel. I had a split job role up until a week ago I was performing Admin duties in the Morning such as; Processing Certificates, Inputting Questionnaires and Student’s reviews and observations etc then in the Afternoon I was the Receptionist Meeting and Greeting Clients and Students, answering the telephone and dealing with enquiries, ordering stock,  booking potential apprentices in for Interviews..Once I had got to grips with those duties I was asked to help out with Recruitment services by logging into the National Apprenticeship website and monitoring it daily.

The past few weeks have been busy I took a week off to go to Austria Skiing for the first time, I’m alive with no broken bones! I caught the bug and have booked again a week before Christmas. I got asked to start training the new Afternoon Receptionist meaning the remaining months of my Apprenticeship will be spent as an Administrator. I went out to my first event at MTC for National Apprenticeship week representing CWCCT, I loved it I got a chance to get out of the office meet new faces and see hour our business recruits students! CWCCT won Training Provider of the Year so of course we were popular. Last Friday I took the afternoon off to be pampered for my birthday I went to salon in Coventry that is owned by ex CWCCT student’s who studied with us in our Hairdressing Academy many years ago!

 

Many things have been planned for me throughout my Apprenticeship this Year such as Telephone Questionnaires where I will be ringing students and Employers for feedback and so much more.

I hope you enjoyed reading all about the start of my new adventure!
