"My apprenticeship at JLA has provided me with a wide range of skills and experiences to become a qualified Field Services Engineer. I’ve been provided with everything I need to develop my career with a company which obviously cares for its customers. The support I’ve been given has been amazing; my Regional Operations Manager and my Technical Skills Coach and the other engineers in JLA, they have all played a key part in helping me complete my apprenticeship and become a fully qualified engineer. 

An engineering apprenticeship at JLA is a fantastic opportunity! For anyone thinking about it, I’d just say GO FOR IT! It’s been the best decision I’ve made. I had no prior knowledge or experience in engineering but JLA saw the potential in me and supported me through the apprenticeship. I’m really proud of what I’ve achieved over the last four years. I wish I’d done it earlier."  - Jamie

"I love working for JLA, as I feel a lot of freedom within the job as I am always moving around and I have always enjoyed being physical. I feel like always be myself and I have such a supportive team and manager. I have learned so much already and gained so much experience in only 4 months. I like learning alongside someone who has great knowledge of the industry and jobs it has given me a better idea of how I can deal with tricky situations if I was out on my own. Although my journey has just started within the company, I am excited to work hard and work toward eventually becoming a qualified engineer. I would highly recommend doing an apprenticeship within JLA. "
