“The HR Apprenticeship program is more than learning at work for me. The knowledge and experience I have gained opened a door for career development, promotion and gave me exposure to a number of business aspects that were out of my scope beforehand.
My portfolio’s overall score grew month by month on BePro website which gave me confidence and motivation to apply for a promotion and achieve more. One of the requirements of this apprenticeship was to submit evidence based on your daily tasks, proving certain behaviours, skills and knowledge required from a HR professional, this gave me an opportunity to analyse gaps and work with senior leadership, in another words this task I had to complete took me out of my comfort zone.
Those evidences gathered regularly, then became my solid examples for a panel interview, which I succeeded in.
It has now been 10 months since the course started, I have secured a level 4 role in Amazon, which allows me to work remotely, reached 93% of overall progress and submitted 5 out of 8 required assessments for Level 5 CIPD HR Diploma in Human Resource Management. I am looking forward to the next challenges and opportunities that might come after the course has completed.”
