@bt_uk Apprentice Development Assessor, Rebecca Watt, started out as a Modern Apprentice which inspired her to help and support other young people on their journey to the digital world of work:
My MA was packed with ‘on the job’ training, which was exactly what I was hungry for. I was given the opportunity to learn important skills like teamwork and collaboration, vital for today’s workplace.
Being an MA was a fantastic way to meet people, ask questions, be curious and really understand the diversity of roles on offer in a large organisation
I completed my MA in March 2016 and I knew straight away that an Apprentice Development Assessor with BT was the role I was destined for. I really wanted to be involved in training, developing and nurturing BT’s future digital workforce.
I love my job because I get to tap into my own experience as an MA to offer support, guidance and advice to tech apprentices and trainees working towards SVQ qualifications. Being able to give something back has been incredibly rewarding, especially when I can see apprentices grow and develop throughout their time at BT.
