  • The Apprenticeship has been awesome. I’m learning from teachers who are Electricians. I’ve also enjoyed getting the different tickets and licenses.

  • I was good at Maths so I was drawn to an Electrical Apprenticeship. PEER offer really good job security and experience because they send you to different host employers and we gain a variety of experience which you probably wouldn’t get with a direct employer.

  • Everyone has been supportive at PEER and at my host company. I didn’t have trade experience before entering my apprenticeship so everyone has been patient with my learning. What I enjoy about my apprenticeship is the mix of practical and theory, it’s a good balance.
