"The apprenticeship has given me the chance to learn on the job while getting paid at the same time.

"I originally wanted to be a solicitor, but the thought of getting into debt really put me off going to university.

Meet the apprentice - Darren's story:
“I would encourage anyone else thinking about an apprenticeship to go for it.

"For me, it was a risk as I was a little older, but I decided it was a risk worth taking and haven’t looked back since.

"It got me back on the career ladder. If I could go back and do an apprenticeship straight after leaving school, I would.”
