I’m a second year Engineering apprentice, currently on placement at TTS (Track Transit System). Prior to this, I was on placement at the Engineering Workshop and Terminal 5.
I came out of school with average GCSEs and went on to sixth form to study as I wanted to become an Accountant. After the first year, I knew it wasn’t for me, so I left and joined a technical college studying Electrical Installations Level 2 and 3, whilst working part time at a supermarket to earn money. Although I gained qualifications and knowledge at college, I wanted on-site, hands-on experience.
I began looking at apprenticeships. This gave me the opportunity to find a place that aligned to my values, one of which is to work your way up within a business. I enrolled in a Harrods apprenticeship in Refrigeration and Air conditioning, which I completed a year of before taking on Heathrow’s Engineering apprenticeship. This apprenticeship has given me an opportunity to start, develop and pursue my Engineering career.
The reason I chose Heathrow was because of the variety of work and opportunities that I could pursue. I could also genuinely see the possibility for real progression. For me, it’s really important that I work hard to become a fully qualified Heathrow Engineer. I would love to work my way up the ladder to management level in the future when I am ready for it – and it’s great to know it’s a real option here at Heathrow.
My advice on applying for the Heathrow Engineering apprenticeship scheme is to work and study hard for the required grades, and always be yourself.
