Painting & Decorating Apprentice 

Nathan James joined Y Prentis in September 2020 as a Painting & Decorating apprentice. At the age of 27, he realised that working as a call centre agent was no longer for him. Nathan disclosed that he has Asperger’s Syndrome (a type of autism spectrum disorder) during the recruitment process. His condition affects how he communicates and socialises. 

To find out more about how Nathan overcame some of the challenges he faced at the beginning of his apprenticeship, we invite you to read his full Case Study, which you can view by clicking on the image below. The Case Study contains the traditional Q&A section, which normally features in our ‘Meet our Apprentice’ blogs, on page 2. We trust that you will find Nathan’s story to be a truly inspirational read and hope that it will encourage those with disabilities to apply for one of our apprenticeships.
