Richmond School students secure apprenticeships

Three students from Richmond School and Sixth Form College are celebrating after successfully achieving sought-after apprenticeships says Richmondshire Today.

Josh Wrightham, 16, applied for his apprenticeship with Richmond-based OS Electrical Services on May 10 and immediately impressed Ollie Scott, managing sirector and a former Richmond School student.

“The main thing that jumped out at me was the impressive amount of work experience he already had at such a young age, through school placements and having also worked in several part-time jobs, whilst at school.

This shows he is not afraid to work hard, get his hands dirty, and knows what is to be expected of an employee.”

Josh said: “I decided to apply for the apprenticeship, because I like doing practical work and becoming an electrician looked like a really good opportunity.  So far, I have really enjoyed it and have learnt many new skills already.”
