Ahmed Shares Their Foundation Apprenticeship Experience

Seventeen-year-old Ahmed Abdou started his Business Skills Foundation Apprenticeship (FA) in 2018. Ahmed’s FA is run in partnership with his school, the College and technology giant Microsoft.

Currently in the second year of his FA, Ahmed spends time working in Microsoft’s Waverley Gate offices, learning about various elements of the organisation.

Having chosen to study an FA, Ahmed now hopes to go to university and is keen to do so through a Graduate Apprenticeship route.
