BTEC Level 3 Engineering
“I find it interesting to strip the machines down and see why things happen. Anything is achievable as long as you have the right mind set.”
A course in Engineering at Walsall College has engineered a bright future for Charley. Now working full time as a Training Academy Development Technician at Patriot International, she’s got her sights set firmly on a rewarding future as the company expands.
“My course covered a wide variety of engineering and I managed to cover 17 topics including Further Mechanics and Vehicle Technology. I really enjoyed completing the extra six units too in order to achieve the extended diploma.
“I’m currently undergoing training and I’m excited about working for Patriot International as it plans to expand. I love working in the workshop and carrying out maintenance on machines because I find it interesting to strip the machines down and see why things happen.
“I can see myself working in the Training Academy carrying out demonstrations for the technicians we train. This would involve me going on site to a power station (or anything that requires pipework maintenance) and carrying out either bolting or machining in order to gain the relevant experience. Anything is achievable as long as you have the right mind set.”
