"I did a lot of research early on about the path I wanted to take, and the UCAS Discovery event helped me formulate my CV ready for the apprenticeship I wanted to apply to. The event helped me to identify the skills I needed to build on to be a successful candidate. I went on to do a finance apprenticeship at Warner Bros."
“Before I went to the UCAS Discovery event, I had no idea what to do after Sixth Form. At the event, I spoke to a degree apprentice who told me about his experience. I was really excited by the concept of getting paid, on-the-job experience while also getting to study – it was then I decided I wanted to go down the apprenticeship route. I'm now an apprentice at IBM.”
