I’ve always had a strong interest in engineering, but I felt that I’d gotten as far as I could in my previous job, so I enrolled on the Production Engineering Level 3 course in order to further my career opportunities, and I’m so glad I did!
The course led me to GKN Aerospace, where I’ve completed the Level 3 and Level 4 apprenticeships and feel like I have achieved so much more than I could have without the qualification.
The course lecturers were SO supportive, and even though I’d never done anything like this previously, I never felt like I was alone or struggling.
Engineering is such a varied profession; it’s forever growing and always evolving and there are so many ways you can go with it. I’ve found that you can always learn more, develop new skills and transfer to new areas to build your knowledge base.
My words of advice would be – there’s a lot of opportunity out there, you’ve just got to go for it.
