Apprentice Case Study - James Bolton
Why did you choose to go down the apprenticeship route?
I initially went to Hereford Sixth Form (for a month) but after a summer of working missed a regular income. I knew some of the staff at HGTA and after discussions with them – I decided that this was the best route for me.
A day in the life of…?
Meetings, meetings and more meetings!
What is your most memorable moment or greatest achievement on the apprenticeship programme?
Representing HGTA at a number of job fairs.
What are your top tips for apprenticeship success?
Adopt a professional attitude throughout, just because you have an apprentice title, it doesn’t mean that you are worth any less to your business. Hard work and the right attitude gets you noticed and helps you progress.
What kind of opportunities have opened up for you on your apprenticeship programme so far?
My apprenticeship program opened up an opportunity at allpay after I didn’t see a future with my employer at the time – that has opened the door to a number of opportunities / job progression during my combined 11 ½ year spell at allpay.
