3rd February 2020

Colt Powell - Year 2 Gas Apprentice

Colt is in the second year of his gas engineering apprenticeship at our Portchester Training Centre, and works for Liberty Gas.

What made you apply for an apprenticeship?

I applied because gas is a great trade to get into and I wanted to have a job that's hands on. 

What is the best thing about your apprenticeship? 

I like being within a workplace and learning something I knew nothing about before I started.

Would you recommend an apprenticeship to your friends and family?

100% - apprenticeships are the best way forward.

What have you gained personally from your apprenticeship?

I've gained knowledge about a trade, and been given a great opportunity.

How have you found the apprenticeship experience overall?

My experience has been great, it's helped by getting me into a grown up working environment from school.
