Apprentice Staff Network

Apprentice Staff Network Summer Away Day (June 2022)

The Apprentice Staff Network (ASN) is a group of past and current technical and non-technical apprentices; the ASN supports all members across different levels and teams within the University. The aim of the ASN is for all to share their working knowledge, experience and development gained from being an apprentice.

What we do

The Apprentice Staff Network can provide the following:

  • Informal 1:1 meetings
  • Host training and development days
  • Drop-in career progression sessions

How do I join?

I joined the Research and Enterprise department at the University in September 2021. Having the Apprentice Staff Network was a great stable source of familiarity for me and being able to connect with other apprentices throughout my course is fantastic. The University is so supportive of their apprentice staff and help is around every corner if you need it.

Having started my Level 3 Business Administration apprenticeship in during a unpredictable 2020 (With the Covid-19 pandemic) I found the support of the Apprentice Staff  Network extremely useful as it allowed me to speak with those in a similar situation. With this support I went one to pass my apprenticeship and now hold a full time role with in  the University of Bristol.

I am a Solicitor Apprentice in the Research Contracts & Compliance team within RED. My day to day work is largely centred around working with academics and external parties to draft various types of Research Agreements. I also complete some work in Compliance which involves ensuring projects are in line with legislation, and advising on how projects can comply with legislation including advisories on applicable licences. Alongside this, I am completing my LLB in Law over a 5 year period, and will go on to qualify as a Solicitor upon completion of the SQE. I am really enjoying both the learning and working aspect of my apprenticeship and really believe it is the best route to qualification.
