Rachel Green
Engineering Apprentice @Cadent Gas
Rachel didn’t come into her apprenticeship from an engineering background, either academically or professionally. Having worked her way up through office-based roles for several years after graduating university, she decided that she needed a completely fresh challenge. After successfully applying to a Cadent apprenticeship online, Rachel found the role of an Emergency Gas Engineer a perfect fit for her future. Applying in her 30s, an apprenticeship may not have been considered the usual path, but she has ultimately benefitted from taking a leap of faith.
David Purdue
David initially trained in musical theatre and dance at Performers College, spending a decade in shows, videos and touring. Highlights included Disney's 'High School Musical' on stage, fronting a video for UK band Razorlight and 18 months in a boy band touring across Europe. Since 'retiring' from performing aged thirty David has work as an events manager, firstly at the House of Commons and more recently for the Royal Horticultural Society. In his spare time David is currently a soloist with the London Gay Men's Chorus and co-created the 'Hobbies for Health' blog, as well as being a keen gardener.
