My apprenticeship experience: after 2 weeks!

Assalaamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

I hope you are well.

So sorry for not posting in ages!

I have just not had the energy to do so. I never realised just how hard it is, at times, to be a full-time working Muslimah!

Anyway, I thought I would reflect upon my first two weeks.(This is actually the only time that I have enough energy to write. It’s just a coincidence that it was at the end of my first two weeks. 🙂 )

The first week allowed me to gain a lot of information as to how to use everything and how to solve common problems found by users. It also allowed to get to know the company culture, become closer with my team, get to know people, and start using the staff benefits! 😉

I got to know some things about the users, from the ones to avoid at times (My team suggested them!) to the ones that need immediate attention.

I also got to know little tips and tricks which would help me in times to come.

The amount of software and hardware that I need to get a good grip on is quite big but alhumdulillah it seems to be going well so far and insha’Allah it will continue to go well and I will become very proficient with all the bits of technology that I will be using, insha’Allah.

My team have been really good as well, alhumdulillah! There is a woman in the team and another woman who sits next to me from another team, alhumdulillah, so it’s not that bad. Altogether, including the other apprentice (whose name is Matthew, by the way), we are a team of 6. Small but powerful! 🙂

As I go into my last week for this section of work time, I am slightly apprehensive of what the first two weeks of training will entail and how my classmates and tutor will be. Insha’Allah everything will be really good! (Ameen!)

Oh I completely forgot to tell you guys that I had a meeting with my work-place assessor on the Friday within the first week. (Sorry!) He went through what his role will be during the apprenticeship and how the training will be roughly set up. He gave us a outline of how we will be assessed, from work-place assessments to exams to assignments. We were given a schedule for the entire year and we were even told about the complaints process! They’re clearly focussed on making our experience the best it can be! Alhumdulillah! He then gave us all of his details and left. We now have scheduled meetings with him every six weeks, I think.

Apart from what is written above, I don’t think that I have anything else to tell you guys about. Just that it’s going well (Alhumdulillah times a billion!) at the moment. Insha’Allah I will try and take some pictures to show you what it is like there but I’m a bit worried that I will look a bit silly!

If you have anything which you like to know in particular or any questions unrelated, just drop me a comment and insha’Allah I will get back to you as soon as possible.

JazakAllahu khairan for sharing this experience with me and sorry for not posting much.

Assalaamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

A Modern Muslimah ❤
