Ellie (19) chose to do an apprenticeship after leaving Sixth Form as she wanted to move away from the traditional classroom-based education system we spend so much of our early lives in.
However, she still wanted to carry on learning and acquire new skills while gaining the experience of working in a business too.
So Ellie, from Hucknall, joined CT Skills as a level 2 business administration apprentice, working in their Alan House learning centre in the middle of Nottingham.
