What our students say

 I wanted to get into an industry which was hands on, and I could learn on the job, which I have been able to do with my apprenticeship. In my first year of college we were covering health and safety and how to behave on site and this was really helpful with my apprenticeship. When I have completed my apprenticeship I would like to work for a few years then start my own business, where I will be able to employ apprentices just like me.
