Apprentice Insight - Danielle Weeks

As a young woman slowly making my way onto the career ladder I believe apprenticeships work and are absolutely great. I have been ever so lucky to begin my Career journey with the wonderful Lexus in Hedge end and I have and am still currently loving every moment being a part of the team who have become like family.  

When I first began my journey with Lexus as a sixteen year old girl I thought I knew a lot about myself and the working environment and the way the world only to have discovered I knew very little and was about to learn and lot more and gain knowledge on these things. I started here at Lexus as a young girl with dreams and ambition and two years on I still have the same level of motivation if not more in hope to be successful and to be the best I can be.  

Since starting my journey with Lexus I have grown in Confidence, Knowledge, Mathematical skills and elegance within myself. I personally have a younger sister and after my journey so far and very gratefully winning last year LSP’s Apprentice of the year award I would love to be a good role model for her and younger girls to show that apprenticeships do work and if you believe in yourself you can succeed at whatever you put your mind to.  

The tutors at Learning skills Partnership are amazing and are always so helpful, they have helped me grow and succeed in all areas of the apprenticeship and in all my assignments. Ann Grubb my most recent tutor has been so lovely and has really kept me motivated and has kept pushing me to be successful in my work. The staff here at Lexus are also very amazing and I cannot stress enough how grateful I am to them for helping me along my journey so far.  

Overall Learning Skills Partnership are by far wonderful and I would 110% recommend them to anyone thinking of doing an apprenticeship. Apprenticeships are the first step to getting on the career ladder and they help you to grow and believe in yourself that you can do well if you work for it. In my eyes everyone should try an apprenticeship as mine has changed my life and has given me belief and an insight in where I want my career to go in the future.  

A Huge thank you to Learning Skills Partnership and Lexus for everything so far and all your help, You are both spectacular!
