Katie Harding – Former Business Administration Apprentice

Katie Harding – Former Business Administration Apprentice

As part of National Apprenticeship Week we’ve caught up with former apprentice, Katie Harding, to find out about her experience as an apprentice and what she’s doing now…

“I am a former Business Administration Apprentice of The College from 2012-2014, having worked at Coast & Country Housing to complete my Level 2 and Level 3. I spent four days a week in my role at Coast & Country, and one day a week studying my NVQ qualification.

“After gaining some experience in the marketing department within Coast & Country, I was keen to explore that progression route. With the help of Redcar & Cleveland College I was able to select and adapt the units I completed to support my journey, so then moved into the role of marketing administrator, and then marketing assistant within Coast & Country.

“Through my apprenticeship I was able to pick up and develop transferable skills – such as good communication, time management, problem solving and the ability to work professionally. These are all transferable skills I was able to take into any new employment.

“I am now working as a PR and Communications Executive at a marketing agency – Narrative Integrated Communications – who now regularly work with the college to support and implement their marketing strategy – so I have gone from being a student at the college to actually marketing for them!

“My assessor Julie was regularly on site to visit me at Coast & Country to make sure I kept up with my progress, she was a great help and had a really good working relationship with my employer.

“College was relaxed and provided plenty of opportunities to meet new people and develop interpersonal skills. All the staff I worked with were very supportive throughout my time there.

“I chose Redcar College as it was a local provider! If I could give any advice to anyone starting an apprenticeship it would be: do it. I wish I had started mine sooner!”
