I’m sure everyone says it, but the great thing about an apprenticeship is that you’re learning on the job - you get so much experience and you don’t end up with tens of thousands of pounds of debt that comes with a degree. So what would I say to anyone thinking about applying? Do it. Seriously, right now, stop reading, go and write that application! https://www.prca.org.uk/PRApprenticeship”

I knew I didn’t want to go to university, so looked for apprenticeship opportunities – I didn’t want to study anymore, I just wanted to kick-start my career!
Having previously been quite shy, my apprenticeship has been the perfect stepping stone between school life and work life, and I’ve gained so much real life experience in a professional environment that I never could have got from attending university.
