What did you love about your apprenticeship?
I love that it has given me the opportunity to learn on the job and the SHE Technician Apprenticeship will provide me with the essential knowledge needed for my current role and for the career I want to pursue.
What would you say to somebody who is considering doing an apprenticeship?
I would recommend anyone to do an apprenticeship, as it gives you fantastic on the job experience and helps you develop new skills that you wouldn’t gain attending a classroom-based college course.

Yes, it has. The practical training has given me chance to put certain skills into practice and has helped me to gain more confidence at work.
