IT apprentice Curt Blunt
Curt Blunt is now working as an IT Support Technician after his apprenticeship gave him the work experience he needed to kickstart his career.
The 20-year-old said: “When I was applying for jobs I wasn’t getting anywhere. I was applying for between five to 10 jobs a week and either didn’t hear back or was told I didn’t have the experience.
“I thought the apprenticeship route would give me that experience. I now have a full-time job that I wouldn’t have got without it.
“The apprenticeship was really good, and I found I was learning something new every day. The college was good and the staff were really nice and helped you a lot and made sure you got through the course.”
