I chose Apprenticeship training because I wanted to work in retail. It was a good idea for me and my family agreed with this. I wanted to get a qualification in retail and also get some work experience.

I heard about available opportunities from Dianne at the Youth Connexions Centre in Welwyn Garden City. I had to go for an interview and then I had a maths, English and ICT assessment.

Positives: Everything! It makes me progress a lot.  I like this better than school or college. The teachers are very nice and I get a lot of help from them.  We are like a big family

Negatives: For me, nothing is not so good!

My key advice: I would say to go and see for yourself and then decide if it is for you.
