Kim said: "The apprenticeship route gave me the independence of being able to study and gain UCAS points whilst also getting work experience in Greiner and becoming financially stable. I’ve always had a passion for engineering and being able to gain valuable skills from other people in the industry and study at the same time was a far more practical option in my opinion for me than A levels."
The Awards are part of NI Apprenticeship Week, an annual week-long celebration from 5-9 February, led by the Department for the Economy, aiming to raise the profile of apprenticeships across Northern Ireland by bringing together partners including local councils, employers, universities, further education colleges and private training providers.
It provides an excellent opportunity for individuals of all ages who aspire to become apprentices, as it provides a platform to gain valuable insight into a wide range of apprenticeships across various sectors. These sectors encompass construction, transport, accountancy, trades, engineering, dental, and more.
As part of NI Apprenticeship Week, SWC is hosting an All About Apprenticeships event for those who are considering applying for an apprenticeship in 2024. The event will provide the opportunity for parents/guardians/students to have a personal video or voice call appointment with a member of the apprenticeship team at SWC.
