"I left school at the age of 16 and like a lot of other people my age I had no real idea of what I wanted to do and a lack of direction. I heard about Cranswick’s Butchery Apprenticeship programme and I knew this was something that would throw me out of my comfort zone, but I really wanted to give it a go.
Doing the Butchery Apprenticeship programme was something completely different to me, I am learning so much every day with a really supportive team behind me. I have created a work ethic whereby I have a new and positive outlook on my career, I am enthusiastic and have demonstrated that hard work proposes more opportunities.
I am now working towards being the first of my intake not only to pass my end point assessment, but to pass with excellence. I wouldn’t be where I am today, with the careers prospects in front of me without Cranswick and I am truly grateful for this."
