The press is full of stories about students heading off to university for the first time, but that's not the whole story at this time of year.
September also sees the start of Apprenticeship courses up and down the country and here at Steve Willis Training we've already welcomed over 120 new gas and electrical apprentices, with more expected to join them in the next few weeks.
These young people are setting out on a path that will lead them to a professional qualification and a career that could last a lifetime - all without the burden of a student debt.
Who knows where their apprenticeships could take them? After almost 20 years in the training business, we're proud to see former apprentices now running their own successful heating and electrical companies, and sending the next generation of apprentices to train with us.
For more information about our gas, plumbing and electrical apprenticeships contact our Apprenticeships Team.
