Not only do you earn this valuable experience but you will also receive a wage whilst doing so. A great way of getting your foot in the door and earn your first wage, these opportunities take you a step ahead when studying at college or university.

"An apprenticeship is the best way to learn skills and gain experience. And being paid is an incentive to work harder and progress within the industry” said apprentice civil engineer Daniel Davies.

"I've enjoyed getting to know the team and working alongside them, doing something I've always wanted to do."
