Sarah Coventry is a Receptionist at Newquay A30 Premier Inn. “I dropped out of college when I was 16, so the Whitbread apprenticeship scheme has been a massive opportunity for me to gain qualifications and broaden my knowledge. Working for the company for 6 years, I found the level 2 apprenticeship was a great starting point, It was relevant and rewarding and I completed my key skills level 2 Maths and English. Also, I gained confidence with speaking in a group and showing my presentations to a audience. Now moving onto my level 4 apprenticeship I have never felt so engaged and enthused to develop and succeed. Its much more challenging, its equivalent to a 1st year foundation degree witch I never once thought I’d get when I started here 6 years ago as a member of the housekeeping team. I cant thank Premier Inn enough for the opportunities I have been given with the apprenticeships.
