Meet our apprentices - Syeda's Story

Posted: 16th of January 2018 by Laura Feltz

Hi I’m Syeda

I’ve always had an interest in engineering. I feel more females need to come into the industry and was always a challenge I wanted to fulfil.

Here are a few thoughts from me:

The best part so far has been to come onto site and be hands on the job, no two days are the same, and always have something new to do every day.

At the college’s workshop you can work on electrical boards, motors, machining (lathes, milling machine, pillar drills) and do hand fittings, you really build your basic skills here.

I have learnt that practice makes perfect, you shouldn’t be worried if you can’t do something first time round, you can always practice by asking for more similar jobs until you know how.

During the programme we are supported by Engineering Trust, who come visit us once a month throughout your apprenticeship. They are here to help monitor your NVQ and BTEC. You can tell them about any issues you are having in confidence and they can help. Besides Engineering trust we have our L&D consultant. He is always there to help.

The recruitment process has a few stages, so I would recommend to always be prepared.
