I had nothing to lose but everything to gain. No fees, no student loan, no secret clauses. You earn while you learn and gain a qualification that’s internationally recognised. I’m 100% behind trades because I know they can provide a pathway to a great future.
As an apprentice, I’ve gained a lot of skills but the one that stands out above the rest is being independent. I’ve become more confident in the work I do and the decisions I make, and it’s helped me grow as an individual – and made me an awesome printer. I’ve been able to hone my craft and trust myself.
Doing an apprenticeship has changed my life and my family’s. Trades is a great career option for everyone. With the skills that I have gained I know that the world is my oyster.
