With National Apprenticeship Week in full swing, we present our favourite celebrities who you may not have realised started their careers as apprentices. From the ‘Naked Chef’ to the creator of the Mona Lisa, there are a host of celebrities who started their road to fame and fortune as apprentices. Here are some of our favourites:
Long before Jamie Oliver was revolutionising school meals he started his route to culinary prowess as an apprentice.
Despite leaving school with just 2 GCSEs, Oliver set about his journey by undertaking a NVQ in home economics from Westminster College before wading into the world of apprenticeships. The Naked Chef worked at Antonio Carluccio’s Neal’s Yard restaurant apprenticing as a Pastry Chef and it was here Oliver first started preparing Italian food. Oliver now has a net worth of £240m and offers his own apprenticeship programme for young hopefuls.
