Apprentice Electrician
SSE

Other Stories

Emma is in the second year of her apprenticeship as an electrician. She reveals why she chose the apprenticeship route and what she enjoys most about her role.

What do you do and where do you do it?

I am in the second year of my Modern Apprenticeship as an electrician at Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE).

 

What do you like about your role?

I like how I’m working with people who are happy to share their skills and experience, it’s a great team to be a part of. I am constantly learning and adapting to new skills. I am currently working on a SSE refurbishment near Pitlochry, Scotland, one of the many sites and properties I have had a chance to work on.  

 

How did you decide you wanted to become an apprentice?

While I was at high school I took part in one of SSE’s 10-week employability programmes. It was such a great experience, it gave me an insight into this career I would never had thought to go into. So when I was offered a Modern Apprenticeship as an electrician, I couldn’t refuse!

Emma is in the second year of her apprenticeship as an electrician. She reveals why she chose the apprenticeship route and what she enjoys most about her role. 

Did you ever consider going to university?

I chose to do an apprenticeship rather than going to university because I knew university wasn’t the route for me. I am now able to still learn, but work and earn at the same time through my apprenticeship.

 

Do you think you made the right decision?

It meant I had to (sadly) move away from home, but it has definitely been worth it. I am learning so much and doing something different every day – I know I made the right decision. I feel respected in my role and I think that’s a really important aspect to any job.
