Daniel is a Level 3 Accounting apprentice with the Estates Services at the University of Oxford.
After completing his A Levels at school, Daniel know that University wasn't for him. After seeing his sister do a Business Admin apprenticeship, Daniel was inspired to pursue one himself. Now - with a little over one year left of his apprenticeship, Daniel says he can't imagine himself doing anything else!
"The experience has been very good. As I've progressed along the apprenticeship I've definitely taken on a lot more tasks.
I'm grateful for the extra work because you feel more active - like you're working closer to your destination."
Daniel plans on pursuing a career in Finance after completing his apprenticeship next year.
Devika is a Level 6 Chartered Manager Degree Apprentice working with BMW Group. She received her award from her Training Coordinator, Chloe, and Line Manager, Jayna who shared the following about Devika and her achievement:
“Devika has been able to balance a degree and a busy work schedule seamlessly and has been achieving fantastic results on both fronts, which is a remarkable achievement for her first year! Additionally, the exposure and experience she has been able to gain within BMW Financial Services has allowed her to create a unique portfolio of work that will contribute invaluably to her apprenticeship.”
“My apprenticeship experience so far has allowed me to have the perfect blend of work and academics where both sides enrich each other.
The working world has allowed me to have the structure and discipline I need to thrive in my everyday life whilst achieving a degree which has been a long-term goal of mine.
BMW has allowed me to come out of my shell, build my confidence in the corporate world and grow my business knowledge whilst completing my apprenticeship in a welcoming, modern culture.
Thank you to my colleagues for supporting me throughout my first year."
Alice is a Level 3 Early Years Educator Apprentice on an apprenticeship with Willow Cottage Nursery.
After her apprenticeship, she is planning to continue her study of Early Years at University.
"Before starting my apprenticeship, I had just started my first year of Sixth Form. We were still in the middle of a lockdown, and I didn’t really know what I wanted to do or what was available.
Four or five months into my A Levels, I realised it wasn’t what I wanted to do. I started looking into apprenticeships, not knowing that an apprenticeship in Early Years was an option, or that I would be able to continue through to university after completing it."
"From my first day on my apprenticeship, it has just felt like it fits. I really like it here at the Nursery and it is perfect for me.
I have really enjoyed the style of learning through an apprenticeship. I have enjoyed being around students who also didn't choose the 'conventional' route for their education, and I've gained practical experience in Childcare and working with Early years which I know will put me in a good position for applying to University."

In her nomination, Millie was praised for just how quickly she adapted to her new role after starting: “Millie has consistently surprised us. Her recent observation was fantastic and she was easily performing to a Level 3 standard."
