Why choose an apprenticeship?

Today is Employability Day (29th June) which raises awareness of the help that is available for job seekers finding work. Taking an apprenticeship is a great way to get hands on experience while studying towards an industry recognised qualification and earning a wage.

NPH’s recent apprentice Anthony, who chose to study a Business Administration apprentice after his studies in college said: “Go for it! It’s an experience you can’t get in college or school. You’re getting yourself out and earning your own money”.
