Laboratory Technician apprentice at Biotech Energy Services
I originally chose to study A levels with the intention to go to university, but soon realised that this wasn't the right choice for me.
Not long after, I began to develop a growing interest in the renewable energy industry and found myself checking the government apprenticeship website regularly for vacancies. I always scrolled past anything science-related because I was never an A* student at GCSE despite having enjoyed the subject and assumed that I'd need to be in order to be successful at the job but nonetheless, I applied and here I am today!
I work as a Laboratory Technician apprentice, full-time, for Biotech Energy Services, which specialise in resourceful energy and I am working towards becoming a qualified Laboratory Technician.
Once I have completed my apprenticeship, I will have the opportunity to further my qualifications and skills at St Helens College with a higher apprenticeship (equivalent to degree level).
Who wouldn't want to have a steady job, get paid, study vocationally and have continuous support from a personal tutor? It seems like the best deal in my eyes.
