What our people say:

 I am currently doing my CIMA exams as an IAG Cargo Finance Apprentice. I originally applied to go to University, but on my gap year applied for this apprenticeship as I wanted to go straight into a working environment. I enjoy learning on the job and gaining valuable work experience in a globally recognised company. In my opinion the best thing about being an apprentice is that the exams/courses are paid for, therefore I am not coming out with the debt I would have if I attended university.
