Key tips for new apprentices
Focus on your goals
Map out your career path and set goals (study, work and personal).
Get buy-in and support from your friends, family, or whanau. You will need them.
Organise your time
Pick suitable study times. After work is not advisable because you will be tired. Also, make sure you're organised and keep up with your studies and paperwork.
Communicate constantly with your employer. Tell him or her what you are doing in class and discuss how they can help you practically implement what you have learned.
