Olivia Beech, IT Apprentice (5 months)

I am a very driven and ambitious person, and as such, an apprenticeship provided me with the platform to launch my career and move forward. Although I enjoyed school, I was not keen on continuing education at a very high cost, and thus decided to develop my skills and experience in a professional environment.

"University is not the only path to a rewarding and successful career. An apprenticeship at AXA is a great alternative to further education. You have the opportunity to learn, develop yourself and get paid at the same time!"
