It’s National Apprenticeship Week so we are putting the spotlight on some of our own apprentices.

Pipefitting Apprentice Shaun HughesToday we meet Pipefitting Apprentice Shaun Hughes.

Choosing an apprenticeship has proven the right move for Shaun. He is currently picking up the skills of his trade with NETA, after securing a position as an apprentice pipefitter with Balfour Beatty.

Having previously studied at college and completing his first year at university, he says: “This is different to anything I’ve ever done before. The practical side really helps the theory make sense.”

Full of praise for the NETA instructors Shaun says: “It helps that they have all been where we are now.”

Plus, he adds, years of experience in their field makes their knowledge second to none.

Quick to recommend an apprenticeship, the 19-year-old says: “You have to be prepared for hard work but the rewards that you will reap are well worth it.”
