My FA in 5: Aidan Henderson, Business Skills Foundation Apprentice

My FA in 5: Aidan Henderson, Business Skills Foundation Apprentice

In this My FA in 5, we're asking Aidan Henderson, a Business Skills Foundation Apprentice, to tell us all about their Foundation Apprenticeship experience.

Here's what they had to say...

In three words, describe your Foundation Apprenticeship experience

Excellent. Outstanding. Creative.

What did you find the most surprising thing about the subject or your experience?

The incredible thing about my Foundation Apprenticeship is that it helped me gain so many connections with people from all around the world.

How was the experience different from school?

The Foundation Apprenticeship was different from school because it helps you with your confidence and gives you hands-on business experience that school does not provide you, meaning you are one step ahead in the business world than your peers.

What have you learned about yourself or about the workplace that you didn’t know before?

From doing the Foundation Apprenticeship, I learned that if I am determined and focused, I can achieve anything.

What’s next for you after your Foundation Apprenticeship?

After the Foundation Apprenticeship, I have gone into studying an HNC in Business at Moray College UHI.

We also asked Aidan what their advice would be to someone in secondary school who is thinking about doing a Foundation Apprenticeship. This is what they said...

My advice would be that you should have no thought about doing a Foundation Apprenticeship and doing it. It will open up a whole host of opportunities and connections for you, and it will be the best thing you ever do.
