What I would highlight I spent two years in Wakefield College. I met some good people, made friends. I really enjoyed the teachers that I had the pleasure to be taught by. Nice, approachable, very professional staff who know their job and material perfectly well. Facilities around the campus are clean and comfortable. The library is well organised and has a convenient system that lets you take out books yourself. There is a lovely cafe in the new building. There are some good career advisers too. It was a pleasure to study at Wakefield College.

What I would highlight I decided to become an apprentice for a few reasons. One being, that, it’s a no-brainer really because you can learn the same information and receive the same qualifications, while getting paid. People may think that college is an easy option, because they may not be ready for full-time work. But if you find something that you enjoy doing, work doesn’t have to be something you dread in a morning. Apprenticeships also give you something full-time learning can’t. Work experience. By being an apprentice, you get the opportunity to work in the industry while you learn. This will benefit you greatly in the future, by having years of experience in the field, it will look great on your CV and to future employers. So as they say, get in, go far
