Tom started his apprenticeship journey in October 2019, working with the Council's Regulatory Services team. Tom has taken the opportunity to gain his apprenticeship qualification alongside his varied day-to-day work. Let's hear how he is BLAZE-ing his trail as an apprentice:


Starting my apprenticeship in October 2019 has given me the best opportunity to work in a different working environment than I’m used to and to apply different skills that I hadn’t needed to use before.


I feel like an apprenticeship was a better route for me to take rather than going to university because I can learn on the job and practically develop my knowledge and experiences in this specific sector.


I hope to continue to learn new skills and develop the skills I have gained during my apprenticeship. I also hope to gain a full-time position with Harborough District Council working within the Regulatory Services.


I feel like this apprenticeship has given me the drive to pursue a career and improve my skills and abilities even further.


The support I have received throughout my apprenticeship has provided me with a great start to my career and has made me feel confident enough to take up bigger responsibilities within my team.
