Warwickshire County Council came over to do a good news story on how far we have come and what we do here at Dunlop Systems.
I feel really grateful to have had the opportunity to work for Dunlop Systems and Components. This was all made possible due to my school work experience placement. The work is interesting as every day is different. I will complete my Level 2 Apprenticeship qualification in Business and Admin, then move onto a Level 3 qualification that will be engineering based. I hope to continue my career with Dunlop. I’m learning to drive and hope to travel to work independently soon.

2 weeks ago I did a video of how Exhall Grange School has helped me get into employment and how I was supported. Doing this video has helped me boost my confidence and become able to talk to new people. I believe this has opened me up a bit, I am not normally one for challenging myself but it is always good to change.
Today we did a presentation to a group of students learning Business administration, telling them what to expect leaving school, what we struggle to do ( answering phone calls) and how we overcome our fears.
We laid out the boardroom room for us to use and adapt to the need we needed. We also showed them a variety of business document e.g. Standard Operation, FMEA and sales orders. I believe the students went away knowing what an apprenticeship is and what you can achieve if and when you put your mind to it. I was a real pleasure to show them what I have done and what I intend to do in the future.
I am currently doing a 1-year Apprenticeship at Dunlop Systems and Components in Coventry, doing a Level 2 Highfield Business Administration. This mainly consists of lots of paperwork and super cool CAD Drawings. I haven’t drawn anything spectacular yet, but there is still time as I am still learning.
I have created index’s and databases for Important documentation using my Microsoft Office know how and have been generating Small CAD GA’s for this company, I hope to improve my skills and show them in the future. I am always keen to learn new skills and enjoy new challenges and I hope to progress further.
