Sophie Turner - Apprentice Stonemason
Sophie Turner gave up a potential career in the film industry to become apprentice stonemason at St Magnus Cathedral in Orkney.
“I am so lucky I got my apprenticeship, because now I can settle here, work here and work in a fantastic place like this – which without the apprenticeship scheme I wouldn’t have been able to do otherwise.
"The job is so rewarding because you can take a piece of stone and it is just a block and you make something out of it… you look at it at the end and think I did that"
"Sophie has proven that she is very capable, she has the right attitude, so it is a great opportunity if she sticks with it she will basically have a job for the rest of her life."
