What our apprentices say...
“I chose an apprenticeship because it gave me the opportunity to learn skills whilst putting them to practice in a real life environment, whilst getting paid. This gives me the opportunity to prepare myself for a career in the industry and be able to develop an independent lifestyle in order to suit this career choice. The apprenticeship programme gives me a choice of progression once I have completed the course, such as university, a higher level apprenticeship, or a full time job.”
“I’ve most enjoyed meeting new people, whether they be fellow apprentices or colleagues. I have also enjoyed being able to participate in meetings and conversations and actually understand what’s being spoken about in scientific terms. It’s great to be able to contribute, because at first it was almost like another language with the amount of abbreviations and acronyms! I also enjoy feeling like I’ve earned my money.”
