Olivia was studying a degree in Maths when she realised she wanted to learn in a more hands-on way. She began her manufacturing apprenticeship at CMP in 2021.
I originally chose to do a degree in Maths because I wanted to get into engineering. However, I didn’t really enjoy it because it wasn’t hands-on, so I dropped out. After doing a bit of research, I decided to apply for a job at British Engines. The highlight so far have been the transition from college to a working environment and the amazing support I have received!

As an apprentice, you’ll get to learn on the job while meeting lots of new people. You’ll get to hear different points of view as well which helps you to develop as a person. I’m really glad I chose an apprenticeship because it's taught me how to be accountable and responsible both at work and in my personal life.

There is no substitute for physically handling the tools and materials to accelerate your understanding. The skills you learn during an apprenticeship last a lifetime and transfer from the workplace into hobbies and everyday projects. I firmly believe that the combination of education and practical experience gives you a head start against your competition!
