Don't just take our word for it...

Apprentice Mechanical Engineer, Sulzer Pumps, Leeds

I love the variety involved within my apprenticeship. I’m building skills from manufacturing at component level to learning how to fully assembly the products ready for our customers. It’s great to have so much support from skilled colleagues and Appris.  I am constantly learning and challenging new things daily.

My dad is an engineer and he began his career as an apprentice like me. I’ve learned so much from him over  the years and this has inspired me immensely. I lived in Houston, Texas for many years and was surrounded  by a peer group who all aspired to be engineers.  This role will allow me to go overseas, so I may end up back in Texas!

Apprentice Control and Instrumentation Technician, Nufarm UK Ltd, Bradford

I want to complete my apprenticeship, but I don’t want to complete my learning. I’ve already started my HNC in the 2nd year of my apprenticeship, which is a real achievement this early on. I will keep going and growing to progress in my career and secure a better life for my young family.

Without doubt, an apprenticeship was the best decision I ever made for my career. I feel I’m better off now than if I went to university for a degree, due to starting on a 4 year apprenticeship and learning so much from the shop floor upwards.
