Star Apprentice Shelby
Nominated by our Tutor Nicole
Shelby was a real star during her apprenticeship as she not only had to complete her BA3 apprenticeship, but she also needed to complete her English and Maths qualifications alongside her course. This meant more work, but when you into the equation that Shelby has Dyslexia and fear of exams. Shelby didn't pass the first time, so she employed a Maths Tutor to overcome her anxiety and achieved a pass. I think this shows her true spirit not to give up
Shelby didn't do well at school because of her Dyslexia which was not recognised in time. This caused a real fear of exams that stayed with her. Shelby started working at her Father's company, so there was a lot of pressure to impress both her manager and Dad. She showed real determination to make sure she did.
Shelby laughed all the way through the apprenticeship and didn't complain, despite deep fears that she wouldn't be able to pass her functional skills. Needless to say, she was over the moon when she passed all her exams and her EPA. So was I, as it was so well deserved.
