I gave up my place at university for an apprenticeship at Lotus. I made the right choice, my apprenticeship provides me with a great balance of academic learning and vital hands-on experience in the workplace. Being a part of real projects and discussions has been extremely beneficial to me and is experience I wouldn’t have gained without this apprenticeship. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity Lotus have given me and I can’t wait to see what my future holds.
