“My advice to someone considering starting an apprenticeship would be to just push yourself – there are so many out there, make sure to explore them all!
In any of your interviews, just go for it. They can be quite scary at times, but push yourself, have confidence and believe in yourself.”
“If you are ready for a new challenge and a change of environment from School, then an apprenticeship is a great option. You can develop your skills and knowledge whilst earning a wage, gaining a qualification and getting your foot in the door at a business. It is a perfect way to kickstart your career, so go for it!”
“My advice to anyone considering the apprenticeship route at all, whether they are leaving school/leaving college, or even finishing university, is to stick with what you love and what you are good at – you will find a job that is suitable to you. Whether that be like me going into numbers and payroll, or maybe health for someone else – it will make it a lot more enjoyable and will enhance your skills to the fullest.”
“I would say go for it. Doing an apprenticeship in IT has been the best decision I’ve made for my career and I’ve faced far fewer difficulties than I thought I would. While there are many who think less of women in the IT sector, there are also many people who will support you in your career growth and help you prove those who don’t believe in you wrong.”
