Meet Enrico Ross, one of our Year 1 TPQC Apprentices. Here’s what he said about his apprenticeship with NA College:

“I previously studied mechanical engineering for 1 year at Newcastle University however the teaching style didn’t suit me.

“My friends and family are supportive for whatever career path I choose as long as I enjoy what I’m doing.

“Apprenticeships are very under-represented in schools. I did choose to go to university but it wasn’t for me. There wasn’t much information about apprenticeships as there was uni at the time of my decision.

“Overall, I am enjoying the content I’m studying at NA College and the support that is offered to me as a student.

“My advice is don’t just go down the university route because that’s all that is publicised at school. There are a lot more specific/tailored apprenticeships available with better career paths.”
