Conner has always had a talent for football, but was forced to reconsider his options after an injury put an end to his dreams of becoming a professional footballer. After coming across Skills Group at a careers event, Conner started an apprenticeship in construction before realising that he still wanted to be involved with sport.
Skills Group enrolled Conner on the learn2work programme, with the aim of developing his skills and knowledge. Conner was then offered a Sports & Leisure apprenticeship, working with Skills Group. He now aspires to join the police force.
Skills Group has helped me achieve my ambition to work in Sport. I would recommend apprenticeships, they give you a real chance to reach your goals and gain work experience and knowledge while learning at the same time.
