World Skills UK medal winner John-Robbie has talked to us about why an apprenticeship was the right decision for him.

First considering going down the university route, John-Robbie then decided that he wanted to learn a trade whilst in work – so the apprenticeship route was perfect for him.

He added that time management, communication and working with colleagues to make sure jobs are done on time are amongst the many skills he has learnt during the 4 ½ years he has spent as an apprentice.

He has also enjoyed working with other apprentices and managing a workload to deliver in good time.

John-Robbie also encouraged others to take the apprenticeship route, saying:

“Apprenticeships are the best way to start your working career”
