This is fantastic recognition of the hard work and dedication she has given to MK Snap and we wish her every success on the night and in her future

Good luck Emily – We are right behind you – You deserve it

Meet Emily

How long have you been working at MK Snap?

I have been at MK Snap for 2 ½ years in various roles. I first visited when I took part in a week of work experience with the local council and I got placed at MK Snap as part of my studies. I completed the week, then a few months later I completed a second week. I enjoyed coming so much that I started to volunteer on a regular basis throughout the summer holidays and while I was doing my A levels. In September 2016, I started my apprenticeship and joined the team at MK Snap permanently.

How did you feel when you found out you were nominated for the national awards?

After winning the Bucks Apprentice of the Year I was overwhelmed by the feedback I received and this award alone was amazing enough. But when I first found out about the national award, I was really shocked that I had made it through and been nominated with so many other talented nominees. I am now super excited for the 1st December to attend the awards night at Wembley, I just need to decide on my dress now!

What does your role as an apprentice involve?

My role as an apprentice is the support the tutors in sessions as they deliver educational and lifeskills training to the disabled learners we work with.

Whats your favourite part of your job?

The best part of my job is coming in to work and every day being different. I love interacting and spending time with the learners I support. I currently assist in work training, catering, craft production, media, sport and lifeskills sessions.

Have you worked with disabled adults before?

My mum is also in the same area of work. When I was younger I would go to events that my mum would hold and meet many of the individuals. I have always found interacting with them natural and have always had a really good understanding of their needs.

With the experience you have gained from your apprenticeship, what would you like to do in the future?

I am not sure yet! I really enjoy my current work here at MK Snap but one day I would like to train to be a paramedic or perhaps a firefighter
