Maryam Zeitoon, an ESOL student originally from Iran, is currently a modern apprentice with Arnold Clark.

Working in the branch I learn from experience, by seeing how to do things, and at college we do the theory. I’m really happy with the apprenticeship scheme. I think it is the greatest opportunity for me as woman.

What do our students think?

On my first day in college, I knew nothing about motion graphics but the lecturers' support, knowledge, and passion allowed me to learn everything I needed to start a job in the industry. The experience in college allowed me to apply to university where I could continue my learning journey. Currently, I am working as a Digital Designer in a Glasgow based post-production company as well as finishing my 4th year at University. Learning in an industry-standard environment makes you more comfortable, confident, and fully prepare for university and a career.
