NTU apprenticeships: where women earn while they learn

Thinking about launching a new and exciting career? Kat Paricos is a Level 6 Food Industry Technical Professional degree apprentice at Nottingham Trent University (NTU) who recently explained why she chose this career pathway. 

"I really enjoy being an apprentice because you're given so much opportunity to learn new things, try out the job and also use what you've done at university in practice," said Kat.

Kat was previously recognised for her work as an apprentice at the National Apprenticeship Awards where she was awarded the top prize at the Regional East Midlands ceremony.
