SDA’s apprentice Courtney is an Apprentice Star.

Hi, I’m Jim, Co-Founder and Brand Ambassador at The Apprentice Academy. One of the best things about my job, is seeing the apprentices really shine in the workplace. On Wednesday, I made the trip down to SDA Consulting, a Manchester based Chartered Surveying Practice and one of our Proud Apprentice Employers. The reason for the trip was to present SDA’s apprentice Courtney, with an Apprentice Star award.

Courtney started as an apprentice nearly two years ago supporting the SDA Team including Anne Marie her Manager with duties ranging from printing, binding and photocopying documents, as well as answering the phone. She has since completed her level 2 qualification and will soon be completing her level 3 in Business Administration. Courtney is shortly to start a new role, having been promoted to the position of Senior Administrator.   She has developed the skills to be able to undertake a whole range of senior administration duties including supporting on recruitment, assisting in financial management using Sage to process invoices, helping marketing efforts by collating information for project case studies and maintaining and co-ordinating the Health and Safety management system.


I spent a bit of time with Anne Marie to find out why Courtney stands out. Anne Marie said ‘Courtney is great, she always listens, is willing to learn and has a desire to do things right. She also has a fantastic attitude, is always willing to undertake new tasks and to do what she can to help the team achieve our goals.’


So a big well done Courtney. We are super proud and you are a great example to other young people starting out on their careers.
