DVLA

Abigail was in Neath College completing her A-levels in IT, Textiles and Business, when the opportunity to become an apprentice in the DVLA arose. This is a two year course which works along-side Gower College. She saw this as an ideal opening for her as she wasn’t sure about going to University at the time. Apprenticeships are perfect for people like Abi who wish to continue their education whilst in a working environment. She has found that working with people of all ages and experience has helped her dramatically throughout the scheme. At the beginning of the year a full-time position became available within her area and due to her hard work and diligence, Abi applied for this role and was successful. This has further encouraged her to consider the opportunity to apply for the Software Engineering Degree that is offered to internal staff within her directorate at DVLA.
