Scottish Borders Council employee Alistair Colville recently completed his Business and Administration Modern Apprenticeship through Borders College with the support of his employer.

As a member of the Corporate Performance Team who monitor and report on the Council’s performance on a daily, monthly, quarterly and annual basis, Alistair's role was very much based around analysing information and numbers.  He used a bespoke online system to update reports on a daily basis as well as working with employees across all of the departments within the Council.

His Assessor, Pippa Bell, said:

“Alistair was a well organised and motivated individual who found learning by doing the best way of gaining the qualifications that he required to further his career.  Alistair was a pleasure to work with and really excelled in providing quality evidence towards his MA.”

Alistair thoroughly enjoyed the MA process and said the most rewarding part was gaining a qualification which has led to permanent employment with the Council.
