What our students say

Business, Management & Human Resources Student Kara Frampton

Kara Frampton

My apprenticeship is invaluable to me as I am able to gain qualifications as well as earn money. This has been a huge benefit for me as I am able to have an education and save money at the same time which would be impossible for me to do at University. Another advantage is the one-to-one training I have received. The staff at both work and Bridgwater College, have been encouraging and supportive. My people skills and confidence have grown enormously while I’ve been on the Apprenticeship and I have now been offered a full-time job at the School on completion of my course. It’s such a good feeling to find a job you love doing and I cannot wait to see what my future holds!”

Former student of Haygrove School, Kara is currently studying a Business and Administration Level 3 Apprenticeship at St John and St Francis Church School.

Business, Management & Human Resources Student Emilie Levrard

My course has taught me many new skills that I will be able to take with me into employment. Team working and organisational skills were learnt during hands-on tasks such as planning our own successful event where we invited external businesses to talk to the students about future career possibilities.”

Former pupil of Shapwick School, Emilie hopes to go onto an Apprenticeship in Business Administration on completion of her course.
