  • Kerrie Gove

    Senior Executive Assistant, College of Humanities

    “As a former Apprentice, I have gained invaluable knowledge, skills and experience that has enabled me to progress and develop a career as a PA and administrator at the University of Exeter. The opportunity to gain a qualification whilst working not only boosted my CV, but gave me the practical experience I needed to make me more employable. Since completing my apprenticeship in 2012, I have received 3 promotions, and am now working as Senior Executive Assistant in the College of Humanities Dean’s Office.

    No two days are ever the same in my job, but the knowledge I built up whilst completing my apprenticeship has made more resilient and able to deal with any challenges that come my way.”

  • Badar Afzal

    1st Year Commercial Business Programmes Apprentice, University of Exeter

    Meet Badar. He has been working in Contract Research and Consultancy as part of IIB since March 2018.

    “Perhaps I am biased, but I believe apprenticeships are the best early career choice out there at the
    moment. I’ve learnt so much in a short period of time. When my 18 month apprenticeship concludes, I would
    have made over £20k, graduated with a foundation level degree paid for by the University, and gained invaluable experience working in one of the best teams in Exeter.

    The people here are amazing. I’ve done and learnt things I never thought I would. It’s not an exaggeration to say that my apprenticeship changed my life. Perhaps it can change yours too.”
