Alice, 23 – Horticultural Operative Apprentice With National Trust
4 years ago

I’d already gone to university to study creative writing and I got a job in marketing and communications which wasn’t for me.

I really wanted to work outside, but after having spent a lot of time and money at university, an apprenticeship was a great way to get into something like this as you get work experience as well.

The best thing is that I get to work outdoors which is brilliant in the summer; you get incredible work experience out of it and obviously learning at the same time which you just don’t get from a regular course.
