Marketing and Business Apprentices Cameron and Tyler at Hub8 Offices

Meet Cameron, Marketing Apprentice at Hub8

“The best thing about apprenticeships is the ability to learn from a variety of different people to give me as much exposure as possible to all elements of marketing. I would recommend an apprenticeship in Cyber co-working space as it gives you access to a wide amount of people and experience.”

Meet Natalia, Business Administration Apprentice at Hub8

“Business management and administration roles are incredibly beneficial to understanding the basis of how a business is run. This builds upon your professional conduct, customer service skills, and dealing with customer data to a legal standard. It is incredibly beneficial for the real world and can be applied to a variety of other jobs.”

Meet Naimul, Bricklayer Apprentice at Bloor Homes

Naimul, L2 Bricklayer apprentice with Bloor Homes muses about his journey so far and future plans. "I am the first person in my family to be doing a bricklaying apprenticeship and I’d definitely recommend it. You get a life experience with your employer and you are earning while learning.“

Meet Alex, Property Maintenance Operative Apprentice at AV1 Building Ltd

"What I love about my apprenticeship is the fact that it’s a gateway into the trade. It’s a perfect opportunity to learn and get a hands-on experience. My dad was an engineering apprentice at Delphi, so I’ve learnt from him that an apprenticeship can set you up for life."

Meet Bradley, Plumbing & Domestic Heating Technician Apprentice at LPE Plumbing & Heating

"My advice to anyone deciding what to do after school, weigh your options and don’t rush into getting a degree. I definitely recommend doing an apprenticeship in Plumbing and Domestic Heating, it’s a 4 year commitment, but you learn a lot at the College and also get invaluable trade experience at the employers.”
