In my experience, Apprenticeships have occasionally been unfairly considered as an alternative route for an individual who has not succeeded in school, sixth form, college or university – and particularly for support roles ie customer service, HR and business admin. This perception however, hasn’t been as common in engineering and hands on technical roles – …
