Don’t take our word for it – here’s what others have to say…
Against the backdrop of the stereotypical comment of ‘only boys make good engineers’, I completed my apprenticeship one year early, while achieving the highest grades for my BTEC Level 3 in electrical & electronic engineering and being rewarded with the Overall Learner of the Year award by Appris.
Molly Stevenson Midgley
I decided to do an apprenticeship instead of going to university, which has given me great opportunities to learn new skills within engineering and to develop myself further.
Welding & Fabricator Apprentice
I knew I had the potential and ability for university, but an apprenticeship means that I blend my learning in a real job to gain real skills and qualifications. My aspirations are still there, although I have used what I believe is the best route to success.
Mechanical Engineering Apprentice
Choosing an engineering apprenticeship with Appris was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I am enjoying all aspects of the course, especially the electrical & electronic practical side.
When I left school, I wanted to follow in my father’s footsteps and have a career as a motor mechanic. However, I decided to accept an apprenticeship in sheet metal fabricating and I hope to have a successful career in the sector.

We love to see apprentices achieve, including milestones as part of their apprenticeship or stretching themselves to achieve higher qualifications like the Level 4 HNC.
