Learn Devon apprenticeship success for Lauren

Posted on: 22 September 2016

cllr-croad-and-lauren-mauruschatLauren Mauruschat, an apprentice in the TSConnect team of Devon and Somerset Trading Standards Service, has achieved a career milestone by gaining her Level 2 Diploma in Business Administration.

Lauren, whose apprenticeship is being provided by Learn Devon, is now pursuing her Level 3 Diploma in Business Administration. In July 2015, she secured a permanent position as a Technical Officer with TSConnect.

Cllr Roger Croad, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Trading Standards and Learn Devon, presented Lauren with her Level 2 certificate at a Service meeting in July.

Lauren said: “What I enjoy most about my apprenticeship is being in the work environment that my qualification relates to and seeing first-hand what happens in an organisation. I also enjoy gaining knowledge and experience from the people I work with. The support from both Learn Devon and my colleagues in Trading Standards has been exceptional. There has never been a moment where I’ve felt I can’t ask for guidance or advice.

“I would recommend an apprenticeship to others, as it’s a great chance to learn on the job and it puts you into working life ready to discover what career path you wish to take.”

Cllr Croad said: “Congratulations to Lauren on achieving her Level 2 Diploma. Her hard work, together with support from her colleagues and Learn Devon, has really paid off. It’s great to have her as a permanent member of the Trading Standards team and I wish her the best of success with her Level 3 qualification.”
