Apprenticeships are a fantastic way for individuals to gain hands-on experience and skills in their desired field, while also earning a salary and completing their education. This National Apprenticeship Week, we sat down with Ethan Summers, an Apprentice at IProspect, Dentsu, to discuss his experience and the impact that his apprenticeship has had on his professional and personal growth.
Ethan's journey into the world of work began with no prior work experience, but he quickly found that an apprenticeship program was the perfect solution for him.

At iProspect, Dentsu, Ethan has found a supportive and empowering work environment, where he can put his newfound skills and knowledge into practice. Overall, his Apprenticeship experience has been overwhelmingly positive, and he couldn't be happier with the opportunity to grow as an individual and as a professional.
