Case Study

Natalie Duddridge at Express Banners

Natalie’s previous experience with education at school had not been successful and Natalie felt badly let down by the school and education system. Which meant she was unsure about going onto the apprenticeship due to a lack of self-confidence and self-belief in her abilities especially in an industry which historically had been male dominated. Natalie soon realised the difference between school and an apprenticeship and quickly flourished in the one to one support she received in her apprenticeship from her dedicated training officer.

Natalie soon settled into her role and apprenticeship, her confidence grew, developed her skills and became an asset to the company, to the extent that some of her work is being used as a template to help train new members of staff.
