"I really enjoy it because it is very hands on and the equipment here is very sophisticated, so I’m gaining good experience."
Brooke Kempson, Electrical Engineering Apprentice
I joined the scheme straight from school and I’m now in my second year. I go to college on a Tuesday and then the rest of the time it is on-the- job training. As an electrical apprentice, I’m involved in keeping the plant running and dealing with any electrical repairs and maintenance. I really enjoy it because it is very hands on and the equipment here is very sophisticated, so I’m getting very good experience.
I grew up being really interested in engineering as a result of my dad, who is a mechanical engineer. So it was always the manufacturing, rather than the contracting side of the roofing industry that interested me. The apprenticeship is giving me a really good opportunity to get the career in electrical engineering that I have always wanted.
