    "My favourite thing about being an apprentice at Allianz Commercial is the opportunity to get a fantastic qualification as well as learning the skill of becoming an Underwriter by those who have had many years of experience. I felt this was more valuable to me than going to University as the people I am learning from are experienced in the field rather than learning how to become an Underwriter from a textbook. As an apprentice we get opportunities to network and time to help develop as a person but also in the workplace."
