"Going down the Apprenticeship route was the best choice I ever made as there is no better way to learn than by doing it first hand and getting involved in the practical elements, rather than just reading from a textbook alone. Not only has the Mars Apprenticeship Scheme helped me gain qualifications but I now also have experience working in the factory, allowing me to apply the theory I have learnt."
"The Manufacturing Apprenticeship at Mars is a great opportunity to be given freedom to explore and learn about the business and the engineering behind the amazing brands we produce every day"
