Why did you choose to do an Apprenticeship?

The reason I went down the Apprenticeship route rather than A Levels was because I knew by the end of my GCSEs I wanted to go into construction therefore I felt like A Levels would not benefit me as much in terms of learning what I enjoy.

How did you find out about your Apprenticeship?

My cousin works for Beard and I did Work Experience as a Site Manager with him. I met the CEO of the company and he told me to get in contact once I had finished my GCSEs.

What have you gained from your Apprenticeship?

I feel I have more confidence working with other people and that my team works skills have improved.

What do you plan to do next?

After my BTEC Level 3 I will complete my Higher National Certificate and then even possibly a degree.

How will your Apprenticeship help you achieve this?

My Apprenticeship will give me the qualifications to achieve this.

What advice would you give a young person who might be thinking about an Apprenticeship?

If you really enjoy a certain subject at school and know you want to choose that pathway as a career then an Apprenticeship would be an idea.

What’s your top tip?

Get involved as much as you can and ask questions!

How do you feel about becoming an Apprenticeship Ambassador?

I feel happy to be involved and encourage more people to explore these opportunities as I think it’s the best route.
