I chose to enrol as an apprentice for many reasons.  I didn't want to go to university and equally, I didn't want to start a job of which I had no knowledge. Apprenticeships give you the experience in a role and keeps you motivated by 'earning while you're learning'. Not only do I gain the skills needed for an office based role, I also achieve a qualification in business at the end of the course. This qualification and work experience will provide me with the potential to go on and secure myself a full time job in the future.
