The video resources were shared by our Careers Leader for us to watch at home during the lockdown period and they really spoke to me.
I’ve had passion for the railways for a long time and after watching this apprenticeship video I felt as though the Transpennine Express option was going to be very suited to me.
I watched the video a couple of times and it was great to gain some first-hand information from people around my age who are actually doing the apprenticeship. They were very detailed and honest about what doing an apprenticeship is like, why they enjoy it and the skills you need to do one. They also shared detail about the qualifications you gain while you’re in paid employment.
The video was an excellent resource to be able to gain some more knowledge and to actually know what work the apprenticeship includes and the benefits of studying an apprenticeship with Transpennine Express. I thought it was really relevant to the subjects that I study currently at school and it definitely sparked my interest.
