Please tell us a positive story regarding apprenticeships that you can share?
After starting as an apprentice at 16 following high school, I have moved through the company working on a number of interesting jobs and projects and experienced then employing a number of apprentices who I have witnessed make a similar progression within the company. The experience and skills gained through an apprenticeship are second to none and I believe much more valuable than simply an academic qualification.
