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 full-time 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.
