Apprentice, School Leaver
Dillon Kinsella has been at ASE since 2014, and he is now approaching the end of his apprenticeship. He chose the apprenticeship route because the idea of gaining skills and work experience by learning on the job appealed to him.
As is usual with apprenticeships, Dillon attended college to study part-time, whilst gathering evidence for his portfolio through his work at ASE.
“One of the best things about coming to the end of my apprenticeship is the opportunity to help to train the new Service Desk apprentices. Because I have been through the process myself, with Aiden training me, I know what’s involved, so I can pass that on. People learn in various ways and I enjoy adapting training to suit different learning styles and rates.
“I would definitely recommend apprenticeships to anyone who is starting out. They make you more employable, you get paid while learning, and they also help you to get used to types of working personalities. On the Service Desk we deal with lots of different people, and this role has given me the experience of talking and explaining things to people of all ages, personalities and levels.”
