What do the Managers Think?

Sixth Sense Training can only produce the outstanding modern apprentices that we do with the support of great managers. We spoke to some of these managers about their experience with apprenticeships in their business and the benefits they have gained.

Concept Northern – Barbara Borthwick

“Josh has settled in really well in his role at Concept Northern, he’s become a very integral part of the team, he’s very dedicated to his role and he’s absolutely loving his modern apprenticeship.”

“Sixth Sense Training has brought another dimension to Josh’s job role, as well as learning everything he has to within the tech workshop he’s also got the support of his assessors, the assessors have been fantastic.”

“We’ve seen Josh grow, his confidence grow, he’s much more proactive and he’s been putting himself forward for things he has never done before. It’s been an amazing difference to him.”

“We’ve found an ideal situation with Sixth Sense Training as they were able to recruit and place an apprentice with us, I would highly recommend them for any of your apprenticeship needs.”

 

The Art of Upholstery – Paul Mulrine

“I’ve seen a massive improvement in the business, it’s made a massive difference to us with Andrew just being able to tune into modern technology.”

“Sixth Sense Training made a massive difference to my business and I can’t imagine going back to the way we were before. I can’t do anything but recommend them to anyone else.”

 

Young Enterprise Scotland – Mark Armstrong

Our colleague, Scott decided to focus on videography when he started with YES and through Sixth Sense Training with his online courses, he developed a real skill base and focus on videography for YES.”

“As a training provider, Sixth Sense Training really focused on Scott’s requirements to assist him with his job at Young Enterprise Scotland, he got regular check-ins every couple of weeks from his assessor and helped him through his course work.”

“Working with Sixth Sense Training has really enhanced Young Enterprise Scotland’s knowledge of what they do, but also enhanced Scott’s opportunities for the future.”

 

Cailean Property – Colin Storrie

“I decided to take on a modern apprentice from Sixth Sense Training as we identified a gap in our team where we felt that we had to get ourselves up to the digital age that’s coming now and I wanted to get Mathew’s skills involved in the company.”

“I found Sixth Sense Training to be very helpful, I was very impressed with the candidates Sixth Sense Training supplied. Mathew has progressed very well with his apprenticeship training, he now uses the skills that he’s learned during his course in his day to day tasks.”

“Would I recommend Sixth Sense Training? Yes, I would and hopefully, we can find another good quality candidate by using them again.”

Market Segmentation

When we talk about you or your organisation’s market, we’re talking about all customers and potential customers. This means that any time you’re doing or saying anything which could possibly promote your business, this is classed as marketing. It makes sense then that all types of marketing endeavors should be well planned and understood so that they are as effective as possible.

A Market Segment is a group of customers with shared characteristics. Market segmentation is the process of establishing different groups of customers and potential customers with a shared characteristic. For example, a sports retailer might segment their customers into different groups with a shared interest in specific sports like football, golf, tennis etc.

 

Other shared characteristics which are different from a business’ other customers are…

  • What they want from a product or service
  • The amount they are able to or willing to pay for it
  • The quantities they buy
  • The types of media that they use
  • The time and place that they buy
  •  
Market Segmentation

Customer Classification

Customer Classification is the process of assigning a label to your customer based on how ‘good’ they are. For example, a regular customer of yours might be classed as a ‘valued’ customer and is therefore eligible for certain benefits.

Customer Classifications are generally used at the discretion of each business, however, common types of customer classifications are Valued Customer, VIP, Premium Member,  Founder, Gold, New Customer etc.

It’s important to remember that these two types of groups are different and usually unrelated. For example, your own business may have many ‘good’ customers, but they are probably from a variety of market segments. Your valued customers probably live in different areas, buy different products and respond to different types of marketing. So, customers although in a different marketing segment, can have the same customer classification.

Identifying Characteristics, Motivations, and Behaviours of Potential Target Customers

There are many different ways of getting this information. Some companies ask for feedback after doing business with their customers. This allows the company to find out what made them buy from them at that point in time.

Another way of finding out what characteristics your potential customers may have in common is to hold a focus group. This is when a group of consumers are gathered together and then given the opportunity to share their opinions on a product or service. The information is then taken back to the company and analysed.

However, the most common way of gaining this information is to simply ask your customers for it! Surveys, or questionnaires are cheap and they allow you to find out exactly what your customer’s needs and expectations are.

 

These are all effective forms of market research and allow you to cluster your customers based on their characteristics.

My Career Journey Before Sixth Sense Training

In March I started a Digital Marketing Modern Apprenticeship at Sixth Sense Training. Before deciding to become a modern apprentice I was a Sales Advisor at Superdrug working part-time. Although the experience was good, it was not a job I wanted to pursue as a career. I had also recently completed an HNC in Events Management at college and decided to look for an apprenticeship, as I wanted a full-time job and income.  Digital Marketing looked like a great area to continue to improve the skills I had learned at work and college.

I wasn’t the best pupil at school, struggling with some classes, although I was much better with creative classes. I went to Calderglen High School and I enjoyed the experience overall. School was my first experience handling stressful situations and complete work with due deadlines. Unfortunately. my 4th-year exam results were poor and I only passed one exam. It dawned on me that I had to work hard in my final years in High School in order to achieve the grades I wanted to. I then chose classes I had a keen interest in such as Drama, English and Media Studies.  This worked well and I left High School with 2 Highers and a variety of National 5 qualifications.

When I left High School, I was unsure as to what I wanted to do as a career. I had no path to follow and it started to become a worry. That’s when I started looking at college courses and I struck an interest in the Events Industry. So I started the Events Management course to further my learning experience.

Beginning My Apprenticeship

When I graduated from college, I began looking for apprenticeships and discovered Sixth Sense Training online. They were advertising a Full-Time Digital Marketing Modern Apprenticeship. This was the moment I was waiting for, the job was something I was interested in doing. I applied online and I received a call from them a week later. I was invited for an interview and it was explained to me apprenticeship would entail and it went well. Thankfully, Sixth Sense Training came to a decision to make me part of their team as a Digital Marketing Modern Apprentice.

Before becoming a Digital Marketing Modern Apprentice with Sixth Sense Training, all I knew was that it’s a great opportunity to earn a wage and also a qualification at the same time but wasn’t really sure how it worked day-to-day I thought that you would just sit and learn about Digital Marketing like it was some form of school/college work but it’s nothing like that. You do have outcomes and units to complete, but you work on them at your own pace and there is also practical work involved, so there is a variety of ways to learn in a Modern Apprenticeship. My accessor meets with me every 2 weeks to evaluate my work and leaves feedback. The structure of a Modern Apprenticeship is fantastic and much better suits my style of learning!

My Roles and Responsibilities

As a Digital Marketing Assistant, I have a variety of roles and responsibilities. Some tasks I do on a day to day basis is schedule posts on Social Media such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Linkedin using specialist software like HootSuite. I create content incuding advertising images, videos and GIFs for our website and social channels.

I also take part in events and Career days where we go to venues and schools to promote Sixth Sense Training modern apprenticeships and learning opportunities. These fairs have also a good opportunity to use my Events Planning skills as well as my customer experience to talk to the people interested in doing a Modern Apprenticeship.


Lee Helped film and edit (and stars!) in this short promo video.


I now regularly work with Podio, Hootsuite, Kickresume, and Adobe CC. I’ve been taught how to create content for our website and also post live vacancies and reviews. My team can now produce Testimonials and Promo videos. It’s an amazing experience learning the ways of a Digital Marketer with hands-on work. If I’m not shooting and editing videos or updating social media, I’ll be working on my e-learning work which builds my theory and knowledge of the marketing industry.

My Apprenticeship So Far

My experience so far has been amazing, I have enjoyed every minute of my Digital Marketing Apprenticeship so far. At first, I thought it was going to be a case of just sitting, working on my coursework until I completed it, but every day is different. There is great variety in my workload and you can work at your own pace ensure you understand everything. There is no pressure at all when undertaking a Modern Apprenticeship.

I am enjoying my Digital Marketing Apprenticeship, it’s a great experience and I am adapting new skills. I love being part of the Sixth Sense Training team and I now have taken my first steps on my career path and further my knowledge and skills in the Digital Marketing Industry.  Overall my Digital Marketing Apprenticeship has been great and anyone who is unsure about a career path should consider a Digital Marketing Modern Apprenticeship.

My Next Steps

I want to complete my modern apprenticeship, and further my career and experience in digital marketing.

Spotlight on Jazz Fernandez: Females in Tech. #ScotAppWeek18

ScotAppWeek18

As part of #ScotAppWeek18, we sat down with Digital Marketing Modern Apprentice, Jazz Fernandez. We asked her about her apprenticeship and her advice for any other women looking to join the world of tech.

What is your job role at Sixth Sense Training?

I’m the Recruitment and Marketing Assistant at Sixth Sense Training and I’m currently completing my Digital Marketing Modern Apprenticeship. I work with the Recruitment Manager to help employers find candidates for other modern apprenticeships. My role involves posting job adverts on our website and advertising our job roles on social media sites. I also assist in interviewing candidates. I work with specialist social media marketing tools such as Crowdfire and Hootsuite to promote our roles and grow our audience.

Why did you choose to do a Modern Apprenticeship?

I chose an apprenticeship because when I was at school, I had struggled with the learning environment and my confidence was low. When I left school I didn’t have the grades I needed for college and had no work experience. A modern apprenticeship gave me the opportunity to gain a qualification in an environment that I enjoyed. My apprenticeship allowed me to find full-time employment and grow as a person and become an effective part of a team at the same time. I found the one on one tuition to be much more suited to my style of learning and it really helped with my confidence in my abilities.

What do you like the most about your apprenticeship?

#ScotAppWeek18 Jazz Fernandez

I love the confidence and skills my apprenticeship has given me. Before I started my apprenticeship, I had suffered from really bad anxiety but there has definitely been a massive improvement in my mental health and my overall well-being since starting my apprenticeship. My managers have told me they have noticed a huge difference in my personality, and I am now more assertive. Hence, I’ve become happier to perform tasks well independently and much more competent at my job.

What would you say to other females thinking about an apprenticeship?

I would say do it! There’s nothing stopping you from doing an apprenticeship and it’s one of the best decisions I ever made. The skills I’ve learned and the support I’ve had throughout my apprenticeship has been incredible and therefore I’d love to see more women working in S.T.E.M subjects too.

Top 10 Interview Tips

After carefully following our ‘10 Tips For Creating a Great C.V. ’ the next step is to get prepared for interviews. In our line of work, we interview a wide range of candidates for a variety of roles within a vast number of organisations. Therefore, we see a lot of good and bad examples of interviews. The interview stage is the employer’s way of getting to know more about you so it is vital you prepare. However, interviews also give the applicant the opportunity to impress and to find out more about the job role and the organisation you would be working for. We understand that interviews can often be daunting experiences so follow our top 10 tips to ease your fears and show why you are the perfect candidate.

Do your research

It is always encouraging to speak with proactive candidates who have taken the time to research the job role and have a rough idea what will be expected of them. Most businesses have an online presence, so have a look at their website, social media, and even any online news articles to see what you can find out about the company, what they do, and their company ethos. Also be sure to have a copy of the job advert and try to match your skills and strengths with the job duties they are looking for.

Practice your responses

In an interview, you will be asked a series of questions in regards to your C.V. Interviewers are always interested to see what you can bring to the role, your skills, and your aspirations. These questions can seem scary, however by practicing your responses before attending the interview, you should be able to highlight your skills and provide evidence of how you might have previously used these skills to get tasks completed. Taking the time to practice really does pay off.

Dress for the job you want

First impressions are important and interviewers always like to see candidates making an effort rather than turning up in their jeans and trainers. Now, we understand that not everybody owns a business suit. However, a smart outfit and good personal hygiene are essential to show the interviewer you are professional, ready to work and be conscious of the employer’s environment and expectations of their workforce.

Don’t just talk the talk

We love receiving C.V’s highlighting a variety of skills and achievements. But reading about them is not enough for us to put you forward to an employer. We’re not expecting candidates to carry out a series of tasks like The Apprentice, but we need want to know why these skills would be beneficial to the position you are applying for and how you implemented such skills in previous roles. Don’t just say you are good at something, justify it.

Interview the Interviewer

Often, job adverts don’t mention the salary or the company we are recruiting for. We always try to fill the candidate in on these factors during the interview, but it’s good to see a candidate being proactive and preparing questions for the interviewer. This demonstrates your interest and level of research on the role.

Be early

But not too early. We don’t want you lingering around aimlessly waiting to be seen. Arriving five or ten minutes before your scheduled time is perfect. As a recruiter, there is nothing more annoying than a good candidate who turns up late for their interview slot. Or doesn’t turn up at all. Being early shows the employer that you are serious about the position and sets a good example. Be sure to factor in travel time and if you are running late, contact the employer to inform them. Use Google maps to plan your journey, know the building you are going to and allow extra time.

Employers love passion

There is nothing better than speaking to somebody who is genuinely passionate about the position they are applying for. Show why you are passionate and don’t forget that body language and tone are great indicators. Be as honest, open and positive with your interviewer as possible.

Use Professional Language

In Scotland, many people tend to use slang in normal conversation- “aye, naw, ken, yous” etc. However, no boss wants to hear this when they’ve just met you and if you are applying for a job that involves answering phones, dealing with the public or other businesses. Practice your interview voice and correct terminology. Remember that your interviewer is a professional and not one of your mates or family.

Breathe

Interviews can be a stressful experience, but try to relax and remain as calm as possible. Bring a bottle of water into the interview and take time to regroup if you are nervous. Try to use your body language to exude confidence by maintaining eye contact and shaking the interviewer’s hand at the beginning and the end of the interview. If you prepare correctly then you should be confident of your chances.

Follow Up

Although you don’t want to pester the interviewer for days after your interview and bombard them with phone calls when they are still trying to make their final decision. Instead, send them a short email within 24 hours thanking them for seeing you, reiterating your interest in the job and highlighting any additional details that may have been overlooked in the interview. It’ll keep you at the forefront of the interviewer’s mind and let them know you are serious about getting hired.

Good luck and remember that everything takes practice. If you aren’t successful at your interview, don’t get disheartened. You will get better with practice and eventually the right opportunity will come along!

Interview Tips

Top 10 Tips for Creating a Great C.V.

1Creating A Great C.V

Creating A Great C.V

One of the most important aspects when looking for a Modern Apprenticeship is creating a great C.V . If you take the time to get it right you will secure interviews in no time, if not you may be overlooked time and time again by employers. Your Curriculum Vitae is a place to include all your work experience, education, personal achievements and a great way to sell yourself to prospective employers. Here we give you our top 10 tips on creating the perfect C.V to land your perfect job.


1.Take your time

One of the most common things we see at Sixth Sense HQ from young job hunters is a rushed CV. Missing information, spelling mistakes and grammatical errors are the main culprits and spending a little bit of time making sure your CV is detailed and free from mistakes can make a huge difference to your chance of success.

2. Express your Individuality

Many potential apprentices have similar employment backgrounds and educational histories so it is important to distinguish yourself and put your personality into your C.V. Experiment with the layout, add an “about me” section, list your interests and hobbies, some candidates even create video C.Vs and go digital. Just make sure that your creativity doesn’t distract from the message by being difficult to read!

3. Keep It Brief

 A good C.V should be no longer than two A4 pages. This should be plenty of space to include all relevant information and not lose the employer’s interest.

4. Make sure your C.V is up-to-date 

Many candidates forget to update their C.V regularly, and potentially crucial information is left off. Recent work placements and new qualifications are often forgotten about. However, they could be the difference between getting an interview or your application being passed over.

5. Tailor Your Application

Another common issue with job seekers is that their application isn’t tailored to the specific role they are applying for. Therefore, employers can tell you haven’t spent much time on your application. If you are looking for a Digital Marketing role, your application should reflect this and not focus on your interest in health & beauty for example.       Business Man Thumbs Up

6. Include a reference

Whether it is a previous employer, a teacher or lecturer or even a coach or youth worker, having a reference to vouch for you can be a great way of validating your application.

7. Ensure the CV is in date order

 Your most recent employment and your highest level of qualification should always come first in their relevant sections. This allows an employer to easily identify your career path so far and your level of academic achievement. Make sure start and end dates are accurate.

8. Use a professional e-mail address

Although [email protected] or [email protected] might go down well with your friends, they do not give off a great first impression to potential employers. A simple firstname.lastname email address is ideal for job-seeking and allows you to keep all correspondence separate from your Topshop offers and chain-mails from Gran so that that job offer doesn’t get lost in the shuffle!

9. Always watch your font

 It might look cute but Comic Sans is never O.K for a C.V. A simple font like Times New Roman, looks professional, is easy to read and won’t make recruiters roll their eyes.

10. Use professional language

In Scotland especially we have a tendency to speak in slang, text speak and made up words. Avoid phrases like “I would love to work for yous” and “A am” instead of “I am”. A C.V is a professional document and it is important you maintain a professional tone.

There’s No Wrong Path to Employment.

No Wrong Path

At Sixth Sense Training, we understand that everybody’s method of learning is different. There is No Wrong Path. We also realise that exam situations don’t always provide an accurate reflection of an individual’s ability, work ethic or willingness to learn. However, we’re also aware that many young people across Scotland have been left speculating what the future holds after receiving SQA exam results.

 

In a bid to ease fears and illustrate that exam results shouldn’t define the career of a young person, Glasgow City Council’s ‘Developing the Young Workforce’ (DYW) department implemented the social media campaign #NoWrongPath. The #NoWrongPath campaign celebrated the range of diverse career paths that employees throughout Scotland have taken since leaving secondary school. Participants were asked to post a photograph holding a sign with their name, what they were doing when they left school and what they doing now, along with the caption #NoWrongPath.

The campaign coincided with Scottish Exam Results Day on August 8th. No Wrong Path trended across social media platforms upon launch. Successful organisations, business personnel and famous faces, such as Scottish singer KT Tunstall and STV weatherman, Seán Batty were amongst those showing their support for the campaign.


The Campaign

The campaign coincided with UK government plans to get more young people ready for full-time employment by 2021. This follows reports that young people leaving higher education are lacking the skills required to immediately go into the workplace.

The Scottish government are promoting alternative routes to work as a result of this report. This is designed to help young people achieve the best possible chance of succeeding. College and university courses remain the favoured routes of school leavers. However, vocational qualifications, such as Modern Apprenticeships, are a popular route being promoted.

Modern Apprenticeships appeal to both employers and employees as apprentices are trained in skills relevant to the workplace. The qualification is government funded and can be completed within one year.


Sixth Sense Training Louise Goodman

Modern Apprenticeships

Its clear there remains a degree of apprehension surrounding modern apprenticeships. College or university are often perceived as superior alternatives to apprenticeships. The perception of apprentices as being the ‘lackey’ still exists along with the assumption of poor wages and prospects. 

The Sutton Trust carried out a recent study on career perceptions. The study found that 80% of young people believed that their career prospects would be greater enhanced graduating from college or university rather than completing an apprenticeship. This confirms apprehension amongst young people.

Additionally, many people believe that graduates are more likely to earn better salaries when compared with modern apprentices. However, the study found this to be untrue and confirmed that apprenticeships often lead to similar career earnings as graduate jobs.

Learning Disability Week- Scotland

Learning Disability Week

Mencap message for Learning Disability Week is to urge employers to consider the benefits of employing people with additional needs. There are benefits for both the person with a learning disability and also for the organisation in which they work.

A young worker

Research carried out by Mencap has indicated there are a number of barriers, which make it harder for people with a learning disability to find, and stay in work. These include negative attitudes and low expectations towards people with a learning disability from employers, managers and colleagues; skills and qualifications gaps, lack of flexible, personalised employment programmes and unfair treatment and discrimination in the workplace.

The week aims to highlight and remove the barriers faced by people with a learning disability to ensure they enjoy the same quality of life as the population as a whole.

According to research carried out by Mencap, nearly 1 in 3 of 18-35-year-olds with a learning disability spend less than 1 hour a day outside their homes and currently 8 in 10 working-age people have a mild or moderate learning disability. However, fewer than 2 in 10 are in employment, with less than 6% in paid employment.

We want to help change that.


Accessibility

Sixth Sense Training takes pride in being open and accessible to the needs of the employers and the employees. Therefore, we aim to match each employee with the perfect business, allowing both to thrive.

Our partnership with assistive technology specialists, Concept Northern, has made this a reality. Concept Northern continually support people with disabilities and learning difficulties in employment, education and privately.

Learning Disability Week- Concept Northern

If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of employing a team member with a learning disability, including boosting staff morale, financial costs and improving the public image of your company by demonstrating a commitment to diversity and inclusivity in the workplace, then contact Sixth Sense Training.
