Resilience is a key skill for apprentices

Some people find they struggle to get into an apprenticeship, Sarah who works as a Project Assistant at Cavendish Nuclear says the best thing to do is be yourself in all aspects of life, and it is important to be resilient, as often when one door closes another one opens. Hear answers to questions like:

  • What advice do you have for people struggling to get an apprenticeship?
  • Were you nervous on your first day?
  • What’s it like working for people who are a lot older than you?
  • Has anything gone wrong where you’ve had to put in extra work to get back on track?
  • What do you think is the secret to enjoying working life?

Sarah’s perseverance and resilience helped build the strength needed to process or overcome any hurdles she faced. Apprenticeships come in a huge range of job areas, providing the perfect opportunity to kickstart your career and earn while you learn.

Don’t forget, you can do an apprenticeship at any age, as there’s no age limit. Everyone can benefit from upskilling themselves, whether it’s polishing up skills you already have or retraining in a new field of work.

Sometimes knowing the answers to questions you’re too afraid to ask, are the key to deciding if an apprenticeship is right for you. Watch the video above for more info.
