Star Student January: Sophie Davey
“I am currently studying AAT Level 2 as part of my apprenticeship. My current job role is a Finance Apprentice at Somerset County Council. My future career aspirations are to become a fully qualified accountant.”
Personal Tutor Shannon Dodd says:
“Sophie is currently studying for her AAT Certificate in Accounting. Having started her studies in June 2016, she passed her 3rd exam just before Christmas and will soon be sitting her 4th, with an expected end date in the Spring, well within 12 months of starting.
She is a conscientious, enthusiastic and hard worker, who takes the time to make sure she truly understands each topic before sitting the exam – and has consequently flown through them. She is prepared to ask questions when she is not sure of something and listens and learns from the feedback, applying it to her next piece of work.
She doesn’t get depressed by her mistakes – she is happy to learn from them and use them to motivate her further.
This positive attitude to her studies is mirrored at work, where she has been shortlisted as Chairman’s Young Person Award 2016.”
