National Apprenticeship Week: Joseph Connolly

8th February 2022

National Apprenticeship Week: Joseph Connolly

“Don’t limit your dreams” – that’s the motto Joseph Connolly is living by as he makes the transition from lifeguard to paralegal.

The 27-year-old is currently in the midst of the paralegal apprenticeship in Estate Administration while learning the trade at Higgs.

The majority of the two-year apprenticeship is delivered within the working week with one day a week set aside for study.

“This gives me the free time away from the office that I need in order to catch up with my assignments, along with reading up on the theory work,” said Joseph.

Joseph worked at David Lloyd Clubs for eight years before joining Higgs two years ago, fulfilling a range of roles from lifeguard to duty manager and finally personal trainer.

Joseph said: “It was a bit of a worry stepping into a field of work of which I had limited knowledge.

“But the Higgs team has been absolutely fantastic. They’ve supported me all the way and encouraged me to take on this apprenticeship opportunity.

“I hope to pass my apprenticeship and from there, who knows. If you don’t dream big, nothing will happen.”
