What our students say about apprenticeships at Highbury

"“While completing my Level 3 Diploma at Highbury, I did a two-weeks work placement with Midas which resulted in me starting an apprenticeship with them. I have already finished my Level 4 HNC Diploma in the built environment and I am currently working towards my Level 5 HND. I am really enjoying working in the industry and would recommend an apprenticeship to anyone.”

What our students say about apprenticeships at Highbury

"I had the choice of going to university or becoming an apprentice and I didn’t want to get into lots of debt by going to university. When I found out you could do an apprenticeship in accounting and get experience while learning I was keen to do that. The AAT is a very well-known accreditation so it was a good choice to go with them.”

What our students say about apprenticeships at Highbury

"I picked an apprenticeship so I can work and get experience while earning money making a career for myself and still having time with my daughter. I enjoy plenty of things about my apprenticeship. In my workplace, everyone is super friendly and we all get along really well. My tutor always makes lessons fun and interesting, he's great at reassuring us when we have exams and providing a stress free atmosphere about the course. ”
