    I choose to train as an apprentice because it was very important to me that I could work and earn money while studying towards my qualification.

    It made sense for me to study in an area where I could work alongside my studies. There is a huge benefit to the HLA because you can study locally, there’s no course fees and you learn about the industry while you’re working. There are so many employment opportunities!
