"When I left school I didn’t know what I wanted to do. A family member is an electrician and suggested I try it. I got a job at Tingdene Homes which included Apprenticeship study at Northampton College.
"I’d had a few jobs before I came here and gained a basic knowledge before enrolling on the course as an apprentice electrician. I attend one day a week and receive a site visit once every six weeks. It’s great to have someone come out and visit you at work and the communication is excellent. I love how my day at college is split between a practical session in the morning and classroom learning in the afternoon, it breaks it up. It’s been great to take what I’ve learnt at college back to my everyday job."
