News: Job success for RCAT apprentice


Finding the training that suits you makes all the difference and can make you excel in your career as apprentice Danielle Walker found out.

Danielle began studying her A Levels at comprehensive school but found that A Levels weren't for her. She left after her first year and enrolled on a Level 2 Business and Administration Apprenticeship with the Services to Business team at Rotherham College of Arts and Technology.

With all her hard work, Danielle progressed to the Level 3 Apprenticeship in Business and Administration after her first year at the College. She will be going into full time employment at the end of her Apprenticeship working as the Assistant Apprenticeship Officer for the Services to Business team. In this role, Danielle will support Apprenticeship recruitment and success. Her role will be pivotal in ensuring that the team have the right candidate for their Apprenticeship and that they get all the support they need during their studies, helping them to achieve the success they deserve. 

Danielle said: "I have enjoyed working with the Services to Business department for the past two years. I feel like my confidence has improved from working with the team.

"From my experience in the workplace and attending classes at College, I have expanded my knowledge in various fields of my job role. I felt really supported during my Apprenticeship and knew who to speak to if I have any problem or queries, making my Apprenticeship experience more enjoyable.

"My greatest success so far has been completing my Level 2 Apprenticeship in Business and Administration and then progressing onto the Level 3."

Stephen Casey, head of Business Improvement at RCAT, said: "Danielle is joining the team at a crucial point in terms of our plans for future growth in Apprenticeships and her experience will be vital to this success. Danielle understands apprenticeships so she will be able to support candidates grasp the benefits and what is required from them having already completed her Business Admin Level 2 Apprenticeship and working towards her Level 3.

"Danielle will be joining the team at a really great time as our intake of Apprentices for 16-18 years old has grown by 10% over the past year, which is going against statistics on both a local and national basis with many areas seeing a decline in 16-18 recruitment."
