The Apprentice Voice team consists of three highly committed apprentices who are brought together by their shared values to make apprenticeships better for apprentices and employers. Please find out more about the TAV team below.
Since studying business at GCSE Level, Katie has had an excitement for how businesses work, and especially how the marketing function operates. Continuing this passion to A-Level, Katie continued to study Business alongside other subjects, whilst working part-time.
Katie applied to study for a traditional Business Management Degree at university, before realising that this route was not challenging enough and did not incorporate the work experience she desired. When researching alternatives, Katie stumbled upon the Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship programme at Pearson, and after a lengthy application process, was able to secure a place on the programme.
Dexter started his a-levels but quickly realised it wasn't for him, dropping out of both sixth form and college before finding his apprenticeship with the Edge Foundation in 2017. He completed his level 3 apprenticeship with the Edge Foundation 12 months later and recently completed his level 6 in Digital Marketing.
Niamh has always been passionate about management and strategy, she dropped out of sixth form after realising it wasn’t the correct route for her career.
After researching and working part-time she discovered the opportunities apprenticeships offer.
In 2018 she completed her level 3 Business Administration apprenticeship at the Western Sussex NHS Trust working as a Junior Doctor-Coordinator. During this time, she saw the value apprenticeships offered and strived to undertake the next step in her professional career. This involved researching the Level 6 programme and applying to various schemes. She was accepted onto the Chartered Business Management Degree Apprenticeships working for Pearson College London (part of Pearson PLC).
