Absolutely !!!!! I try and install that thought at college. They walk in late, no steel toe caps, skinny jeans instead of work trousers, come back late from breaks. I tell them that in the real world they would be put the door, do they listen ? NO ! In one ear out the other, they will learn !We take on apprentices as young as 16 and so far 4 out of 5 would prove you wrong. A few of them do need a "you are no longer at school, work is different" conversation on the journey.
