Apprenticeship VS University – Which Is Right For You?
Today (16/08/16) The Metro published a feature headlined “Graduates Playing Catch Up With Arty Apprentices”, pointing out that apprentices can earn a wage of up to four times as much as university graduates. But is that real reason the younger demographic are choosing an apprenticeship over both university and A-Levels?
Apprenticeships provide a hands on learning experience based in a real life surroundings, something that university degrees and A-Levels do not always necessarily provide.
“So far I am enjoying my experience at Fashion Enter as I am always busy with tasks, which means that I am always learning something new about the fashion industry,” says Pattern Cutting apprentice Razina.
Marquel Williams-Braham has recently started a Level 3 apprentice in collaboration with BBC Strictly Come Dancing. On his experience so far he says; “I feel and see my skills growing as I’m working on more and more advanced garments. I have the ability to show my passion, which is making clothes, whilst continuing to develop.”
