Don’t take our word for it, here’s what one of our Business Administration Level 2 apprentices has to say:
I applied for lots of apprenticeships, at least 30 via other organizations and didn’t hear back from them. I applied at Vernon Community College and within a few days I heard back offering me an apprenticeship, after I received detailed information about the position and the qualification I could achieve; I accepted. I`ve been working for several months now and I am enjoying every moment. I`m learning more than ever I would stuck in a classroom on a college course and I`m also getting paid!
