To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week, the Albion in the Community (AITC) website is focusing each day on one of the apprentices currently working with the charity.
First up is Kenny Moor, who is currently studying towards a business administration advanced apprenticeship, working within the disability department at AITC.
He joined the charity in 2015, having previously been employed as a match day steward.
What does your role include?
“My role in the disability department largely revolves around the Gully’s Days Out project. Gully’s Days Out provides free supported and non-supported days out to people with disabilities. The charity has also aided my development as a football coach – and I now regularly coach at a range of our disability football sessions.”
What is the best thing about your apprenticeship?
“You are always learning. It’s great to be in an environment where I can develop professionally as well as building up every day working relationships.”
What are you plans for when your apprenticeship ends?
“I’d love to stay at Albion in the Community, either in a full time or part time job, but I’m aware that sometimes that isn’t possible. I am determined to continue working in the area of disability football and, thanks to the training I have received with AITC and the experience I have gained coaching, I am confident of being able to do so.”
How does it feel to work at the American Express Community Stadium every day?
“I love coming to work – seeing the stadium every day makes me feel proud and is just another reason why this apprenticeship is so unique and exciting to take part in.”
Would you recommend an apprenticeship to others? If so, why?
“Absolutely I would. It is a lot of fun and it does wonders for your confidence. You learn on the job and earn a stable income at the same time. What’s not to love?”
