Hello! My name is Laura Jeffrey and I am the newest member of the CASCAID team, working as an Apprentice Research Assistant. Even though this is my first week working at CASCAID, I have thoroughly enjoyed it.
I decided to become an apprentice instead of choosing the more traditional route of going to university after completing my A Levels. This is because I wanted to learn new skills on the job while earning money. I was also undecided exactly where my A Levels would take me, so an apprenticeship was a great way of helping me chose a career path without the debt or worry about choosing the wrong university course!
I feel that an apprenticeship is a great next step and I am delighted to be working here at CASCAID.
I will keep you updated on my progress here with regular blog posts, so watch this space!
