Hi my name is Tammy Mildren and I’m 19 years old and I was Exim Dance’s assistant Administer which I really enjoyed. In February 2016 I was offered a full time apprenticeship as an Administrator and dance practitioner with Exim dance. I began this on Monday 22nd of February. Before starting with Exim Dance Company I was previously volunteering with them and Plymouth dance in my spare time this is what gave me the vital skills that are needed in my job role. I really enjoy being an administer with Exim because it involves organising and filing which is something I thoroughly enjoy.
My apprenticeship involves using spreadsheets and sending important emails out to different people and organisations as well as this it also includes booking venue spaces and taxis for the different groups we work with and banking the money made from different classes that are run throughout the week them inputting this information into a spreadsheet. Another role is to input people’s contact and personal information as well as ICE contacts into spreadsheets and update the data capture and registers.
I also go out with other Practitioners to teaching in different schools and venues which I very much enjoy as I have made a few phases that I teach in the different groups. Through Exim I have developed my relationship with Plymouth Dance and work more closely with them on bigger projects which means I love because it means I get more involved and develop my skills further.
I really love my job and the work I do with Exim Dance Company and I hope to continue my work with them in the future whether that is through paid work or volunteering in my spare time because they have really given me the skills and confidence I needed in life and I wouldn’t be the person I am now without them.
