Hear from our Apprentices currently working at Arnish:

“I chose this apprenticeship as I was looking to gain a trade without having to go away.  You get paid to learn your trade and whilst being at home it is far more beneficial to me and is more affordable.  After 3 or 4 years you will hopefully be qualified in the trade you have chosen and will be able to have more freedom.  Being able to stay at home was the best part about an apprenticeship at UHI Outer Hebrides whilst others have to go away.  We are offered good support throughout the apprenticeship.”
