    My Apprenticeship is so varied. One day I'm fixing things, putting flanges and pipes together, and the next day I'm doing something completely different such as changing drives.

    NWRC provides a great stepping-stone between school and University. My course has helped me decide which field of science I want to work in. I plan to study Psychology at University.
