Most people look at apprenticeships as the cheating way out. Making it possible for you to not have to go to university and gain a degree. However, this is not how we should think about apprenticeships. They are not a negative thing. Apprenticeships are amazing and we should encourage people who want to work this way to do it. It helps them to gain experience in the area which they want to work. Sometimes University gives you a lot of insight into the past of the career, however this is not up to date. Therefore sometimes it is more beneficial to learn whilst working on the job. Completing an apprenticeship also allows you to earn money whilst learning rather than gaining yourself a massive debt. It is important to remember that some jobs do require university. Therefore an apprenticeship will not be for everyone. However, we should not belittle anyone who does choose this route.
