Ellie thought the atmosphere was great here and enjoyed that she could learn and earn at the same time. Ellie describes her apprenticeship as informative, supportive and hassle free.
She said:
“I have found studying an apprenticeship is a really beneficial way to develop specific skills on the job, there is also the added bonus of earning while I learn!

The staff are very supportive and my class size is quite small so it is a really nice atmosphere to be a part of.

The facilities are great, I’m really glad I chose this pathway to kick-start my career.”

Ellie has plans to progress to Nursing once she has completed her programme
