Student Profile
Mary Wallbank

Ambition: Territory Manager

Employer: Guy Machinery, Gisburn

Age: 21

Mary chose an apprenticeship over university after A levels because she felt the workplace experience would
help her career progression.

A tractor and machinery enthusiast, she interacts with customers, manages the spares storeroom and runs promotions. When she’s finished her apprenticeship she wants to study for her Foundation Degree in Dealership Management with us, then top up to a BSc (Hons) degree.

Mary says “An apprenticeship gives you a flying start. You can apply the knowledge you’ve learned at college straight away on the job and you learn transferable skills you can take with you wherever you go.”
