Have you ever considered pursuing a career in Engineering but feel a classroom is not the best place for you? Or perhaps you’d like to earn while you study?
Here at University Centre Weston we offer just that! With our Engineering Degree Apprenticeship you have the chance to take control of your career. If you want to establish your network and learn in a real working environment, a Degree Apprenticeship is for you!
Recently we caught up with UCW’s very own GKN Aerospace Apprentice, William, who told us his “work ethic and time management has definitely improved” through pursuing his Aerospace Engineering Apprenticeship.
GKN Aerospace is a highly prestigious international engineering firm, with locations based in Bristol, London and Portsmouth. According to their website, “GKN Aerospace technologies have inspired and industrialized the aerospace industry, combining engineering excellence and technology leadership.”
Working with this industry giant is a phenomenal opportunity for an apprentice! Here at UCW, we recognise how William’s unrivalled dedication and hard work with GKN Aerospace will boost his engineering career.
To help prospective learners and apprentices, we asked William a series of questions:
William rounds the Q&A off with some words of wisdom and advice: “as a new starter in a company, the best way to gain recognition is to be proactive with finding work to do, asking lots of questions and maintain a strong work ethic.”
We hope William’s outstanding achievements will inspire the next cohorts of budding Engineer Degree Apprenticeships – thank you William!
