Marissa is 'Apprentice of the Year'
Marissa Francis, an Apprentice Engineer working for ABM UK and studying at the College of North West London, has won the Heating and Ventilation Industry Apprentice of the Year award.
A higher-level apprentice, Marissa will shortly complete her HNC Diploma in Construction at the College's Willesden Campus. She has some useful advice for anyone thinking of becoming an Apprentice:
"You need to be open minded, able to listen and confident enough to ask questions and find out why people are doing certain things, so you understand the process from end to end. I also think that you need to be very motivated and like the fact that things change quickly and you have to adapt!"
Marissa has written about her experience of balancing work, study and family in a blog you can read here
