Rabia Mohammad, 27 from Bilborough, is a Public Transport Business Support Officer at Nottingham City Council. Originally from Holland, Rabia has put in an incredible effort at Nottingham College to help her develop her career and to complete her level 2 and 3 Business Administration apprenticeships whilst overcoming significant language barriers.

Whilst doing her appren­tice­ship and work­ing at Not­ting­ham City Coun­cil, Rabia has also gained qual­i­fi­ca­tions in Eng­lish, Maths and ICT. Despite Eng­lish being her sec­ond lan­guage, she has not let this hold her back and her hard work has paid off. Rabia did so well at the City Coun­cil that, after com­plet­ing her qual­i­fi­ca­tions, she has pro­gressed to the role of Busi­ness Sup­port Offi­cer with them.

I tru­ly enjoy my job because peo­ple care about me as a per­son and about my pro­fes­sion­al growth. This tru­ly cre­ates a fam­i­ly envi­ron­ment where every­body is there for each oth­er. I also love the diver­si­ty of peo­ple I work with. Every­one shares the same vision and is ded­i­cat­ed to the mis­sion shar­ing their experiences. 

I learned a lot in my appren­tice­ships, it helped me to devel­op my lan­guage and busi­ness skills, a chal­lenge I was will­ing to accept. Due to devel­op­ing my skills and my hard work, I have now secured a job at the council. 

 — Rabia Mohammed

Rabia was also run­ner-up in the Not­ting­ham Post Edu­ca­tion Awards in the Fur­ther Edu­ca­tion cat­e­go­ry in Decem­ber 2018. Melis­sa Case, Assessor/​Trainer, at Not­ting­ham Col­lege, who nom­i­nat­ed Rabia for the award, said:

Rabia real­ly stood out for me as she took the work in her stride, was smil­ing con­stant­ly, and nev­er said no to a new challenge 

Assessor/​Trainer at Not­ting­ham College — Melis­sa Case

When asked about her expe­ri­ence of doing an appren­tice­ship with Not­ting­ham Col­lege, Rabia added:

It was a great expe­ri­ence com­plet­ing my appren­tice­ships at Not­ting­ham Col­lege and to show my fam­i­ly, col­leagues and friends on what I have achieved. 

I would not be where I am now with­out the peo­ple around me who always have sup­port­ed me. 

 — Rabia
