Why take an apprenticeship at John Guest

Back in the 1980’s, apprenticeships were not considered at par with degree qualification, which is a perception that changed sometime back. Today, taking an apprenticeship is a genuine alternative to university education and some say it is even better than university, as it is a dynamic way to learn practical skills that can enhance long-term career prospects.

The benefits of taking apprenticeships can make them very appealing and attractive, to start with, it is the only way you can earn while you learn and hold a recognised qualification at the end of the apprenticeship program. The student doesn’t end up being indebted, as education loans can be a huge burden after university.

At John Guest apprentices can gain valuable experience in a real world work environment while they are surrounded and supported by experienced engineers who would pass on their skills, experience and knowledge. The company believes in nurturing and growing in-house talent and there are always opportunities for apprentices to secure a permanent position within the company.

Apprentices are very well rewarded at John Guest, with a competitive salary as they learn and can gain valuable work experience resulting in specific skills using the ‘state of the art’ technology, machinery and equipment.
