An apprenticeship is a great route for your career as you are learning a new skill but also getting the experience while getting paid. I chose NWRC because I’ve always heard good reports about it. I applied for welding as I always had an interest in engineering as I had done it in school.Chloe RankinEngineering (Fabrication and Welding) (Level 3 Apprenticeship)
