"My apprenticeship has motivated me to keep training in the future. I recommend this to people every day and would advise any student at High School who maybe doesn't feel like they fit in there to pursue a traineeship or apprenticeship in Construction and learn these skills while finishing Grade 12. It is the best decision my family and I have ever made."
