People have different views about apprenticeships, but personally I feel it’s a perfect alternative to a full-time University place.
Apprenticeships allows you to develop your skills further and you gain hands on experience, that every employer is seeking when recruiting new members of staff within a company.
You learn while you are in a workplace, which means, minimal disruption and maximum impact. Also, you get paid minimal wage while you learn and you gain a certificate in your specific skilled area.
What more could you want?
The Government need to re-address and emphasis the benefits of Apprenticeships and invest money into this area of learning. Apprenticeships provide you with the skilled workers you need for the FUTURE.
