1. What motivated you to apply for the Scot Agri apprenticeship?

 

The reason I applied for an apprenticeship was I have always had an interest in agriculture and engineering and thought this would be a great way to work in both of those industries. With Scot Agri being a well-established company, I have received high quality training and support to help develop my skills.

3. What do you enjoy the most about your apprenticeship?

 

What I enjoy most about my apprenticeship is the satisfaction after completing a job. It doesn't matter if the job was big or small, complicated or easy, they are all satisfying when they are finished. Other parts I enjoy are having a good relationship with the people I work with and learning about agriculture.

 

4. What advice would you give someone who is applying for an apprenticeship?

 

Some advice I would give is to be prepared as it's not an easy job, but you’ll struggle to find a more rewarding industry. PS: When you're out on a job always take your lunch and be prepared to be cold!
