Christmas Weekend Event 4th-5th December

Apprentice 2

Hey everyone!

This week I have been celebrating because on Tuesday 9th November that marked my one year anniversary at the museum!!!
Seriously, how fast as this year gone?!
I can't believe how much I have done in one year. I have done Front of House, delivered sessions to school groups, been to a few conferences and certainly lots more.
I would like to thank all the members of staff and the volunteers who work at the museum. They have gave me a lot of support over the past 12 months.
So I am in my final year but I don't need to go to college because that is all completed now. I only need to gather evidence for my portfolio. I will soon need to think about what I would like to do after my Apprenticeship because last year went really fast and I have a sneaky feeling that this year will go just as fast.

Thank you all again.
