Apprentices celebrate College of West Anglia qualifications
YOUNG engineers celebrated passing their intermediate and advanced level apprenticeships.
More than 50 apprentices from Fenland and West Norfolk completed educational courses lasting between two and four years at the College of West Anglia’s Isle and King’s Lynn campuses.
Supported by firms such as Able Engineering, Crown Packaging and British Sugar, the youngsters learned a range of disciplines such as electronics, mechanical maintenance and fabrication.
“Although engineering remains a skills shortage area, employers are becoming aware of the skills gap and are investing heavily to maintain their future growth and development of their businesses,” the college’s Susie Massen said,
“Many of our apprentices will progress and develop specialism with their employers and with the right level of encouragement we can raise aspirations and show how engineering can offer a real career path for young people.”
