‘Apprenticeships today are about much more than learning a trade’
30
April, 2021
‘they’re a stepping stone to wherever you want to go.’
 
South West College’s (SWC) Centre for Excellence Manager for Work Based Learning, Christopher Robinson, has seen a lot of change in apprenticeships since he first left school to complete his own almost twenty years ago. Since then, apprenticeships have evolved, with more industries availing of their methods, more students choosing them, and public perceptions changing. The result of all these changes mean that Christopher sees apprenticeships as a better educational opportunity than ever before.
