Becoming an apprentice in the funeral industry wasn't something I ever planned on doing. I have always wondered what went on behind the scenes, but that was about it for me. I began working for Andrew Phillips in June of this year, and I have thoroughly enjoyed learning about all aspects of the business. I have become more confident in my work and in myself as I am being pushed out of my comfort zone a little at a time, which is helping me to grow as a trainee funeral director.
The apprenticeship so far has helped me to improve skills I already had such as using the computer and organising my work, and I am also discovering new skills. I wish to continue learning new things and developing new skills and I hope that down the road I will have a fulfilling career as a funeral director.
