Have you ever wondered exactly what a REAL APPRENTICE is, NOT one of those that make good T.V. and usually with a well paid job already. Oh No,an apprentice is usually one straight from school or college who serves a fully indentured 5 year period learning a craft, ending up fully skilled. Recent changes to what was the norm are 3 year NVQ and module systems of training, but read my book to find out what I think of that.especially in Engineering that involves public safety. I would like to explain that although the book is filled with anecdotes that I hope readers will find light hearted and amusing, my escapades never detracted in any way from the excellent training I received during the apprenticeship I had. I am really pleased that there is a bit of a swing back towards apprenticeships these days with two of my grand sons now ex apprentices. Basically in Marine and Electrical Engineering they will never, ever be out of work. If you or your acquaintances were apprentices in any of the major U.K. industries from the 1950’s on, you may well know of the great time to be experienced growing up, the scrapes young lads got into. Dancing to the end of an era swing bands, Count Basie, Lionel Hampton, Duke Ellington, Ted Heath and then the dramatic change to Rock and Roll, jiving to Bill Hayley, Buddy Holly, Little Richard, Fats Domino, Gerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry to name a few. Looking back I sometimes cannot believe what we got up to even now, however I hope my writings interest and entertain readers and sponsors alike with my experiences from that time. If you were an apprentice from the 1950's compare your life to mine, have you a book in YOU perhaps ! To that end, did or have YOU an ongoing interesting life and work history ?
