Rebecca Main – Administration and Marketing Modern Apprentice at Dogrobes
What type of Apprenticeship did you/are you doing? (Foundation, Modern or Graduate)
Apprenticeship Type: Modern
Subject: Digital Marketing
Which employer did you do/are you doing an Apprenticeship with?
Dogrobes based in Fochabers.
What did you want to do when you were in Secondary School as a career?
In Secondary School I wanted to be a Nurse, however, soon discovered it was not the career for me. I really enjoyed Administration and Business Management courses and soon realised that this was a career path for me.
Why did you decide to do an Apprenticeship?
When starting my job, I discussed with my Manager the options of undertaking a Digital Marketing Modern Apprenticeship or a Business and Administration Modern Apprenticeship. For me, the Digital Marketing Modern Apprenticeship was the most beneficial course as I already had the advanced knowledge about Business and Administration from completing a HND.
What did/do you enjoy most about your Apprenticeship?
I have gained so many new skills and qualities through doing an apprenticeship and wouldn’t have them if I didn’t have this experience. Dogrobes has given me an insight into what route I want to take in my career, and I love going to my work as every day is different.
What advice would you give to anyone else considering an Apprenticeship?
Don’t be pressured into going to university as there are so many other local opportunities to consider. University isn’t for everyone and that’s ok because you can still be as successful if you decide not to go with no student debt! I would recommend doing an apprenticeship as it’s an opportunity to learn and earn at the same time.
