My FA in 5: Callum Kinnaird, Social Services (Children and Young People) Foundation Apprentice

In this My FA in 5, we're asking Callum Kinnaird, a Social Services (Children and Young People) 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

Inclusive. Supportive. All-round amazing.

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

The college are very caring and supportive towards all students.

How was the experience different from school?

There is more a flexible routine. You have more responsibilities. The college care more about how you are doing.

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

I am not yet on placement, but, if I had to answer, I would say that I have learnt that nothing is silly and anything you say is not ridiculous.

What’s next for you after your Foundation Apprenticeship?

I am to get a job as a CSW or go down the Mental Health/Pastoral Care route.

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