Tiegan's story

picture of Tiegan 

My name is Tiegan and I am 18 years old. I started as a Business and Administration apprentice in August 2017. During my apprenticeship I worked in the Information Management and Governance team and have now secured myself a permanent post! Outside of work I love going to gigs and spending time with my family.

Why did you choose to do an apprenticeship at the Scottish Parliament?

When I was at school I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do. I felt like there was so much pressure for young people to either study at college or university. I had never thought about a modern apprenticeship until my school’s career adviser recommended looking into it. When I saw this MA programme advertised I knew that I definitely had to apply. The Parliament is an amazing place and I thought getting an opportunity like that at 17 was incredible.

How have you benefited from your apprenticeship?

I have benefited from my apprenticeship in many ways. I have managed to gain a recognisable qualification alongside learning new skills. I am definitely more confident and have all the vital key skills to contribute to an effective team. I even managed to get an invitation to Her Majesty’s Royal Garden Party!

What's been your greatest achievement?

Being offered a full time post with the Parliament has been my greatest achievement ever and this is something I will always be proud of.
