Apprenticeships have always been a part of British culture. Many industries have thrived for hundreds of years by offering the ability to learn in a more practical and engaging environment than a classroom.
Here at Ritherdon we are no exception. For over 100 years we have given others the opportunity to learn a trade in our workshop, offering training in fields such as engineering whilst gradually evolving and expanding our trades as time has gone on, most recently offering our first Digital Marketing apprenticeship which has been filled by yours truly.
I came into the role after spending a year and a half looking for Jobs after graduating from university and while it can be unusual for apprenticeships providers to accept graduates, I am very glad they did.
My own experience with apprenticeships has been overwhelmingly positive. My time here at Ritherdon has allowed me to develop of my existing skillset in filming, editing, and writing to levels my actual university course, due to covid, was unable to.
