Hey up everyone, Josh here from BellyflopTV!

It’s been a year since I joined the team, so I’d like to talk to you about the experience and advantages of doing an apprenticeship.

I found out about the apprenticeship at Bellyflop TV after calling into the Apprenticeship store in Stockport. I saw the job advertised by Learning Unlimited and I thought – you know what, that’s for me!

I got a suit, new shoes, and had my first proper interview – and then I got the job and I was very happy!

When I started at Bellyflop TV, I was excited to start working but at the same time I was worried about a couple of things, like; Would I get on with the team? or… would I be able to live up to everyone’s expectations?

But after being there for not even a week I knew that I was going to be fine!

Everyone in the team is supporting me, helping me fix my errors and rewarding me when I do well.

But the main thing that has changed in me, since I joined Bellyflop TV, is my attitude towards life.

I used to just put in the minimal effort needed into anything that I did, I always used to say to myself “oh I’ll just wing it”. But now I put in the extra effort and sometimes I’d be up at three thirty in the morning just to get a sunrise shot over Rochdale!

The reason for my attitude change happened because I love what I do and I’ve got the best team by my side to work with.

I have found my calling and it’s all thanks to Bellyflop TV’s team. I’ve had the best start to my career and I can’t wait for my future at Bellyflop TV.

If like me, you’re wondering what your next step is in your education, like if you should either choose a job or go to university, read some of our blogs at bellyflop dot tv.

I recommend looking into apprenticeships, it’s made a huge difference in my life, it could even make one in yours.
