Sophie John began a Gas Apprenticeship at WCHG in 2018 she said, “I took up an apprenticeship because I thought learning on the job would work better for me than being in a classroom. It’s opened my eyes to the real working world and it’s a great experience. If you’re thinking about an apprenticeship I would say definitely go for it!”.
