As a engineering apprentice working in rail consulting I have the opportunity to contribute to large projects such as the Transpennine Route Upgrade and other smaller projects. The workload varies as well as the different types of work, the workload and variance in work generally increases as you gain more skills and experience.

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


Having done an different apprenticeship before starting this one I have found I have definitely developed existing skills and learnt new skills. The new skills I have learnt have been engineering specific as well as a different style that engineering works require. The skills I have developed further are the different broader skills developed from experience working.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I really enjoy my programme, especially starting new and different work as well as the combination of working towards a BEng (Hons).
