"I didn’t want to study full-time but I did want to earn while I gained a recognised qualification. Since the day I started, my tutor has been very helpful in teaching me new skills - I was lucky enough to learn the knowledge from the College and then practise at my workplace as an apprentice. I would definitely recommend an apprenticeship to others, as it helps you to gain the experience you need to get into a job and you get paid to learn the job-specific skills too!"
