Benefits

Everyone seems to be talking about them, but why should you choose an apprenticeship?

No-one is better placed to explain the unique benefits of learning on the job with an apprenticeship through Suffolk New College than our former students. Take a look at the below case studies to see why they felt it was the ideal choice for them.

Ian Twinley, Chairman - John Grose. "I loved the like-minded people, the engineering and earning money which meant I could pay my way. I also learnt I could succeed when given an opportunity to use my skills and put them into practice". Read more here.

Verity Young, MOT Inspector and Motor Vehicle Technician - Appleton Engineering. "The apprenticeship enabled me to work and learn at the same time. By the time I got my NVQ Level 2, I was employable because I was qualified and had a lot of experience". Read more here.

Chris Jones, Virtualisation Infrastructure Engineer - Customer Service Direct (CSD). "The key benefit of being an apprentice is that you earn while you learn. What else is there around that lets you do both?" Read more here.

David Redhead, Managing Director - BSP. "It was a fantastic start to my career, with day-release to a superb engineering department at Suffolk College and the whole of my life has been built on it." Read more here.

Robbie Scott, Electrical Installer - Ipswich Borough Contracts. "Suffolk New College provided the theory behind what I was doing ‘on the job’ – on site I was told “Do this and do that” but the college really taught me why to do it". Read more here.
