Maya Bhardwa

Maya is studying an Accountancy Apprenticeship and works at Ashgates Accountants.

Why did you choose an Apprenticeship?

I chose to do an Apprenticeship because I felt it was the best option for my career. I have always preferred a hands-on learning style and with an Apprenticeship you can study and gain work experience at the same time which appealed to me. I didn’t want to go to university as the costs were too high and I was advised an Apprenticeship was the best route for a career in accountancy as you get the relevant experience and earn money at the same time.

How has Kaplan helped you?

As I am dyslexic I needed more support with studying and I got that with Kaplan. I was provided with extra time with exams, different coloured paper and one-to-one tuition if I needed it. They understand that you are working full time as well as studying so do as much as they can to support you. The tutors are really friendly and are prepared to go the extra mile.

What would be your advice for anyone considering an Apprenticeship?

Firstly I would tell them to research their Apprenticeship as it may not be what you expect which could cause problems. I would also say make sure your Apprenticeship is in something you enjoy as an Apprenticeship is not an easy option, so making it enjoyable helps you love your job and love studying.

What are the main benefits about your Kaplan Apprenticeship?

My Apprenticeship allows me to climb the ladder of my chosen career quicker. It allows me to adapt to the working environment and enables me to learn in different ways. I am able to put what I learn into practice while earning money at the same time. I can see where the progression is within my company, what is required of me and where I want to be.
