An Example of the Impact our Programmes have
Three of our BTEC National Diploma Engineering students Sienna, Katie and Erin have recently formed strong partnerships with local employers, enjoying work experience with three Grantham-based engineering businesses such as Pentangle Engineering Services Limited, Grantham Fabrications and Profile Services Ltd. Their progress and passion for the industry is going from strength to strength. During their work experience placement, we celebrated women in engineering day on June 23rd 2022 for its ninth year.
Sienna has been a varied stet of techniques at her work placement, from programming, welding, developing, and working on off-site projects. She said: “This is a fantastic experience and I have been expanding my knowledge in different areas and learning first hand. For me, this is the most sensible way to learn, by observing in situ and then giving it a go yourself. The team are great and give me clear instructions, supporting me until I have mastered each task. I then have a mix of supervised and unsupervised roles, and every day is different. Women who pursue engineering open a whole new range of career opportunities with lots to learn and the whole world to discover. You get to see things from different perspectives and apply skills that can be used in so many different roles. You could travel. You could save a life. It’s exciting to see where it might lead. I love that there are so many facets from the practical and logical through to creativity and imagination. That’s what makes this sector so special.”
Katie Grew confidence within the first day of her work experience, after an apprehensive start worried about being the only girl on the team. She’s been working on a number of different projects, using the press machine, welding and even making a new forklift cage. On career options, Katie said: "I am thoroughly enjoying the experience, the team and the diversity of the work. I’m not sure yet if I want to go to university or go straight into a job, but this experience will help me with both options. I am also a sergeant with the Lincolnshire Army Cadets, which I love, so who knows… maybe I will look at combining engineering with this.”
