“My apprenticeship was the perfect choice for me!”

“Initially when I was at school, I had no real idea about my next steps. I knew I wanted to go into engineering but wasn’t sure which route would be best for me. Discovering my engineering apprenticeship at HydraForce was definitely the perfect choice for me! My time at James Watt College has been extremely positive and rewarding! I’ve been able to achieve a range of qualifications and training that will help me for the rest of my life.”
