1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


I am an advanced practical apprentice which means I am in more of a practical role. Therefore I am very hands-on every day, even when I am learning in college or theory in the workshop sections.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


I have learnt how to create and understand technical drawings, operating drills and lathes and producing parts using hand fitting techniques. I also learnt how to read Assembly Control Records (ACRs) to assemble aircraft engines.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


It is a very enjoyable programme.

We are involved in group discussions and are asked to help improve the programme by taking part in Flightdeck meetings.
