Town Council Apprenticeship

As an employer Thatcham Town Council had an opportunity this year to offer a Services Apprenticeship level 2 in Business Admin. Working closely with West Berkshire Training Consortium, who would deliver the training element of the apprenticeship, the Town Council set about looking for the right candidate. Emily Maidment comes from a childcare background and approached the Council with the wish to change career. She showed drive and commitment as this would be a change in direction, return to learning and a complete retraining exercise for Emily.

“Working whilst learning has given me the experience to see life on a day to day basis of a business administrator.”

Emily is learning many aspects of how the Town Council works. Working closely with the Services Manager she carries out daily tasks on reception, manages the noticeboards and general support work for the Services Manager.

Emily has been involved with services projects, one of note being the partial refurbishment of Seigecross play area. She coordinated supplier quotes including site visits and requirements, put together a presentation to the Council’s Recreation and Amenities Committee and placed the order. Watch this space for further updates on the play area!

Emily has shown great team working skills and we are sure this Apprenticeship will give her the foundation she needs for a successful career in administration. Thatcham Town Council is proud to be part of that journey.
