ZOE PEAK: My Business Administration Traineeship has kicked started my career and is a great place to start straight from school. Within just a few months I will have a nationally recognised qualification and I had the chance to earn while I learn a new set of skills.
Why did you decide to do a traineeship after you left school?
After finishing school I still had no idea which career I wanted to pursue but I knew I needed to start somewhere! Getting a traineeship with GoldenWest Apprenticeships was the best decision as at the end of my traineeship I will get a Certificate III in Business Administration which will be helpful in my future career endeavours.
What things have you learned so far that could help you decide on your career choice in the future?
So far I have learnt the ins and outs of an office environment and how each role has a specific purpose to ensure that the company meets its full potential and delivers great service to its customers. Regardless of my long-term career choice, this is a great learning environment and I can see myself looking towards more training and even a business management role in the future.

Do you have a supervisor and how have they helped you learn on the job?
Yes. My supervisor is here in the office with me and whenever I have a question, am unsure of what to do, or it's time to learn something new, my supervisor is there to help me out in whatever the situation might be.
Would you recommend a Business Administration Traineeship to others?
Yes. An Admin traineeship is a great place to start, especially if you're like me and unsure of exactly where you should start. Business Admin is everywhere and is needed in all businesses and the the skills and qualifications it can help you to be that step above the rest to achieve the job that you desire.
The staff here at GoldenWest are friendly and helpful and help you to reach your full potential in whatever career pathway you decide on. I get to work alongside people who help young apprentices and trainees every day, it's a great job.
