“My apprenticeship has changed my life completely. I used to be so nervous and shy that I found it difficult to even talk to family, but the experiences I have had throughout school to now, have given me more confidence than I ever thought possible. My advice, if you’re considering apprenticeships, is to go for it and find out how great it is for yourself!”
