Like Charlie Mullins the successful plumber from Pimlico, London I believe the credit and value of apprenticeships is not promoted enough within schools and career advice.
University is not for everyone whether that be for a personal or exam result reasons but we need to move away from the Modern Apprenticeship option being seen as a second rate lesser option.
Especially within trade apprenticeships - electrical, plumbing, joinery, if you put the effort into not only your initial apprenticeship but also your continual ongoing learning thereafter, your trade apprenticeship will really give you excellent value for the rest of your working life.
It's good to see from the article below that the problem with the promotion of apprenticeships is now an issue and hopefully we can start educating the school system and personnel within that there is much more to a successful working life other than a University education.
