Meet the Apprentices...

Shane Sullivan

Degree Apprentice employed at Troup Bywaters + Anders

Studying: BEng(Hons) Building Services Engineering at London South Bank University

Shane progressed from a Level 3 apprenticeship to a level 6 degree apprenticeship all with the support from TB+A.


Why did you decide to do an apprenticeship?

I knew what I wanted to do, but classroom-based learning really doesn’t suit me as I’m a very practical learner. Sitting in a classroom learning theory for three years doesn’t appeal – I find it far better to learn something then apply it as quickly as possible, so learning while working suits me perfectly.

Are there any challenges that you’ve had to overcome?

Balancing your time is one of the biggest issues, and to solve that you need to find the right combination of university and employer. I’m surrounded by people who have gone through the same journey, and if there’s anything I’m struggling with I have people at work and at university who can help organise my time better. TBA has won a number of awards  (such as a National Apprenticeship award in 2018) for the way they support students through Apprenticeship degrees, so I’m very happy with my decision.
