Apprentices studying


"I have always struggled in school with my maths and was so disappointed with the results I achieved in my GCSE's. I started to panic and was unsure what to do as I knew a low score in Maths could affect my choices in the future. I always wanted to do an apprenticeship but worried that my GCSE's would stop me. Thankfully 1st2 Achieve reassured me that it wasn't a problem and that I could get my maths qualification whilst studying and working on my apprenticeship. My tutor helped me find the best way to learn maths and guided me through the work, I can now confidently say I achieved my level 2 in maths. I cannot thank them enough for helping me."
