What did you do before joining the training scheme?
After completing my degree in International Relations, I was elected as the student union Campaigns and Democracy Officer. I spent a year leading on student campaigns and developing the student union’s governance and commercial services, and was one of the lead student representatives on campus. During this time I also served as a Governor of my university, which gave me great insight into how a higher education institution works at the highest level.
What attracted you to the scheme?
I’ve always been interested in higher education and my time at university really encouraged me to explore the sector even further. The scheme offers such a great range of possible placements and opportunities for personal development.
What would be your one tip for applicants?
Your personal statement should be the best reflection of you as possible, the key thing is it to match up your skills and experience with the requirements of the scheme. At the assessment day, just be yourself!
