Subjects studied: Level 3 Marketing Assistant Apprenticeship
Former school: Helston Community College
What’s next: Complete a Level 4 Success Course in Digital Marketing with a view to completing a Level 6
Originally working in hospitality, Luke decided to re-train in marketing to merge his current career and future aspirations together. Finding the perfect mix with Hospitality Table Cornwall (HTC), Luke will be responsible for marketing the project to local businesses in the hospitality sector.
Luke continued to work in a restaurant while completing his Apprenticeship within the College’s central marketing team, where his skills and commitment were noted.
Luke said: “It’s a really nice blend, I’ve worked in hospitality for 13 years and to then combine that with Marketing is perfect.
“I chose the Apprenticeship because I’m very practical, so the fact I could learn without just sitting in the classroom, by actually doing the job was vital. It provided a great mix.
“The College pushed lessons up, depending on what I was working on. The first week I was doing email marketing, I mentioned it and they brought the lesson forward so I could take that knowledge back to work with me. It made doing my job much easier.
“The support from my training advisor was really good, she was always at the end of the phone, I could give her a call now and she’d help me. I don’t think I would have got through the whole Apprenticeship without that support.
“Put some time into researching all of your options. There is no rush, you don’t have to pick all of your options or pick what you want to do as a career now.
“Attend an open day, go talk to advisors here and see what options are out there for you. It’s okay to change your path if you need to, I just talked to someone.
“I’m currently looking to a do a Level 4 Success Course in Digital Marketing which was helped by my training advisor. Then I think I’d like to do a Level 6. Ultimately I’d like to work for a company doing marketing that is fun and exciting.”
