National Apprenticeship Week 2022 marks the 15th annual week-long celebration of apprenticeships across England. This year’s theme is ‘build the future’; reflecting on how apprenticeships can help individuals to develop the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career.
One of our apprentices, Charlie Turner, recently spoke to CIBSE about his experience at Hilson Moran and the benefits of choosing an apprenticeship.
1. What’s your name, title and where do you work?
Charlie Turner, Senior Public Health Engineer at Hilson Moran.
2. What advice would you give to someone interested in doing an apprenticeship?
Joining an apprenticeship scheme can be quite daunting at first and there are times where balancing working and studying is difficult, but my advice would be to push through and enjoy the experience. Progressing from the start of your apprenticeship through to finishing your degree may seem like a long process, but trust me the time will fly by!
I would encourage apprentices to make full use of the resources given to them within their workplace. You’ll be working around so many experienced people who are willing to help you progress in your career and learn, so never be afraid to ask questions or for help.
