Chloe Gill Background
Prior to starting the course, I undertook 4 AS level courses but upon receiving my results, decided that the practical route was more for me, but I also didn’t know what I wanted to do. I got my first job at 14 after school and weekends which has given me the work ethic I believe I have. My job role during the programme was split between the digital team in Bewonder* (marketing) and reception duties for JLL. However, in the first few months at Bewonder*, I rotated around the teams to see which experience I preferred. I then began to adapt and grow my role within the digital team.
I think my professional skills have improved and I have a clear understanding of what approaches to take in different situations. I have improved my time keeping skills, both with hitting deadlines during the apprenticeship standard, as well as in my job role. I started as an apprentice with no experience, and now at the end of the course I have a wide new skill set such as project management, ownership of a process and working alongside clients.
Next step / Course Evaluation
I would like to complete a higher-level course focused on digital marketing. This will allow me to broaden my skillset and be able to implement these within my job role. I have a 5 year plan to progress further through personal development and promotion to undertake extra responsibilities. I am yet to move into a new role however discussions are being held on what to do next, I am hopeful to progress in Bewander* and complete a degree level apprenticeship.
