New apprenticeship standards have not phased one top performing apprentice from Northern Skills Group.
Accountancy Apprentice from Svitzer has wowed her employer by achieving top results in her recent end point assessment.
Hannah Cooke, former Nunthorpe Academy pupil, achieved a distinction grade for the main part of her Level 3 Accountancy Apprenticeship Programme and a distinction grade for the end point assessment part of the qualification, dropping just 50 marks out of 1,000.
Hannah started her apprenticeship at Level 2 with Svitzer 2 and ½ years ago and has thrived in her role and studies, she said:
“I’ve picked up so much while working here, as well as gaining my qualification I have learnt how to organise and manage multiple tasks, communicate effectively with colleagues of all levels and work as part of a busy team. Learning while being in the workplace has really boosted my confidence.”
