Apprentice takes to Twitter to share experience in real-time

A young apprentice, Shannon Coy from New Charter Housing Trust, is today taking to twitter to share her experience of being an apprentice in real-time.

Since starting her apprenticeship in two year apprenticeship, Shannon has been working in different departments to gain a well-rounded knowledge of the company.  She is currently working in the contact centre and will be tweeting during a training day which will include a lot of work in the field.

Shannon said: “I decided not to carry on at college and look at an apprenticeship because I wanted more independence and the chance to get into the world of work. I chose housing because it seems like a really rewarding job where I can work my way up the career ladder while building my confidence. Working in housing is really varied and by telling people all about what I do on Twitter, it might encourage more teenagers to look at an apprenticeship as a start to a great career.”
