‘Expectation vs reality’, it suggests that the reality situation is predicted to be much less satisfying than the expectation perceives. However, modern apprenticeships prove a world where this is very much the opposite way around!
Many assumptions of apprenticeships are stemmed from negative, outdated and inaccurate stereotypes. So, we thought ‘National Apprenticeship Week’ would be a great opportunity to show the truths behind the stereotypes, using our own success stories!
Our current apprentices are Jack, Lauren, Reece, Tom, and myself, Georgia. We’re all doing varying apprenticeship courses, from engineering to business and marketing. I’ve asked them about their expectations previous to starting, compared to how they’re getting on now.
