Here’s what our Engineering apprentices say about their motivation behind choosing Engineering for their apprenticeship programme:

“As a young person this industry (Engineering) can really give you a kick start in life.” William Lowe, Electrical and Electronic Engineering Apprentice at GE Aviation 

“Ever since I was young, I have been taking things apart and trying to put them back together. … this, combined with a family history in the aerospace industry, sparked my passion for engineering. I was always keen on the idea of ‘earning whilst learning’ and having a large debt after university put me off that route, so I decided to do an apprenticeship. I’ve now progressed on to a higher-level apprenticeship, which means I will achieve a degree that my company pays for, and get paid to do it!” Oli Tutton, Engineering Degree Apprentice at Renishaw 

 “I’d worked in retail for nearly a decade and never really knew what it was that I wanted to do. As University never really appealed to me, I’d always thought that an apprenticeship would be a great route to go down as I believe learning on the job is most effective.”  Steve Cross, Engineering Apprentice at GE Aviation
