‘My Apprenticeship Has Offered Me Opportunities That I Wouldn’t Have Otherwise Had’

MBDA Apprentice Samantha Ball took to the stage during October’s Conservative Party conference to discuss her experience of a being a logistics apprentice at the defence company and to promote apprenticeships as a viable alternative to full-time education.

Samantha is currently in her final year of a four year MBDA apprenticeship and has worked across various departments of the company on rotating placements.

She said: “My apprenticeship has offered me many opportunities that I wouldn’t otherwise have had. Being an apprentice and earning means I can have a good social life, run a car and save for a house deposit all at the age of 21.

“I am so appreciative of the opportunities and lifestyle that earning and learning has given me. My experience highlights the naivety around apprenticeships. It is so important that young people are made aware of all of the different options”.
