Li Smith – Apprentice Profile

We’re in conversation with Li Smith, a Finance Business Partner, working as part of the central team at Q3, with a focus on our Hard Services operation. Li is currently studying for her CIMA qualifications, degree level 7 apprenticeship in finance with BPP specialist training provider.

What have you learnt so far from this apprenticeship? 

I’m only one month into my apprenticeship which covered the theory of corporate finance and the expectations of the CIMA qualification. The online sessions are all live classroom delivery and I found that a lot of the questions I had were answered effectively, so I had the best opportunity to succeed in my apprenticeship.

From the online sessions, I found that I had a better understanding of the theory and how this will translate and play a major part in the delivery of my day-to-day job.

What have you enjoyed about this apprenticeship?

I love going into a live group sessions as I have met other people with similar aspirations which provides a supportive network enabling collaboration and the transfer of knowledge and best practice.

Previously, I completed a level 4 CIMA as self-study, and I found the apprenticeship reduced the isolation and helped with my motivation to achieve the key milestones.

What do you hope the apprenticeship will do for you?

From the initial conversations with BPP, I firmly believe that the apprenticeship will build on my existing knowledge and provide additional skills to enable me to not only develop personally, but also to provide the continued professional approach for Q3 and its valued clients.
