It has a ring to it, doesn't it? As a business, we are always very proud of our apprentice engineers and all they achieve. Just before Christmas one of our second-year apprentices went one step further.
Caitlin Sweeney received the James Cuthbertson's award for the Best Female Engineering Apprentice by the Faculty of Engineering & Automotive at New College Lanarkshire. In summarising her efforts, the college's electrical engineering assessor commented: "Caitlin's college work is always carried out to the highest level." With the assistant head of faculty adding, "the winners had demonstrated a drive and desire to succeed in their chosen field of engineering, which is the very essence and spirit of these awards."
Rodger Kerr, Engineering Manager, stated: "both our second-year apprentices have been achieving high results in and out of college and I am delighted that Caitlin's hard work was recognised with this award." With Alan Collin, CEO adding, "as a business we are all a reflection of the standards we strive to attain, we are all delighted with what Caitlin has achieved."
In and around the workshop and the wider business, Caitlin is another member of our engineering team, however, as a young woman, she hopes she is inspiring the next generation of young women in engineering.
If you think you could be our next award-winning apprentice, please send your personal statement to firstname.lastname@example.org and who knows, we could be writing next year's article about you.
