Being effective and productive is important in both your work life and your apprenticeship.

Here are some useful tips:


o    Be more organised and plan ahead – keep a to-do list, diary or use a calendar

o    Know your goals – what are you working towards

o    Set objectives – set daily, weekly and monthly objectives for yourself    

o    Training & Development – keep a record of the all training and things you learn during your   apprenticeship

As an apprentice, you are learning how to be independent and make decisions for yourself. In a busy working environment it is important to be proactive.

You need to focus on what is important to you and what you can excel in. Where do you see yourself in 5 years’ time? Where do you see yourself in 10 years’ time? With the skills and qualification you gain as an apprentice, there are plenty of opportunities for you to aim for.

Time management and planning are key factors in making sure that you are working effectively; the ability to control the amount of time spent on specific activities. To help with this, you could create a master list of all the projects you are working on, and from that, create a daily to-do list. Using a calendar can be useful in keeping track of dates, meetings and deadlines. Focus on the tasks that are of highest importance. As you continue your apprenticeship journey, you will learn how to adapt and prioritise.

Always remember if you feel that you are struggling with your work load or time management, please speak to your manager, tutor and/or assessor. They are there to help and support you throughout your apprenticeship. At Skills for Growth your success is our goal!
