AW Support National Apprenticeship Week

As part of National Apprenticeship Week, we thought we’d introduce you to our 7 apprentices. Each has their own slant on why they chose an apprenticeship and what they enjoy most about it.

Favourite skill learnt: I have enjoyed learning how to weld the most so far, but looking forward to all the other skills I’m going to learn.

Why an apprenticeship: It’s a good way to train on the job, so I can pick up practical experience skills while the learning is still interesting.
