Dan left school and started college but decided the course wasn’t for him so I decided to look for a job. Dan found this a challenge as he had little experience and no qualifications. A friend suggested looking into an apprenticeship.

This appealed to Dan as it meant he would be earning through working, working practically whilst also training and learning new skills. Dan dropped into Martec and we went through the courses available. Dan decided that this course would be best suited to him. We found Dan a suitable placement and worked hard to achieve his goals.

Dan says: ‘College wasn’t for me and I was so unsure what to do. A friend suggested an apprenticeship and I like the idea of training whilst working and earning money. I came to see Martec and after meeting them I felt really positive about my career. I couldn’t wait to get started on my apprenticeship and now I am working towards my level 3 on my Body Repair apprenticeship training’.
