This week is National Apprenticeship Week. For the second consecutive year, a Bridgend College learner has won the prestigious NTFW Apprentice of the Year Award.
Liam Gill was the Apprentice of the Year 2014-15 and is a HNC Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering learner with us here at Bridgend College. Having changed career from personal trainer to mechanical engineer with Ford Motor Company, Bridgend, Liam attended Bridgend College to learn workshop skills, maintenance techniques and more. He completed his Apprenticeship in Mechanical Maintenance, gaining distinctions in all modules in his Level 3 Extend Diploma in Engineering Maintenance.
He said: “The Apprenticeship has been the best thing I have ever done, the training techniques and fault diagnosis have been superb and I will be able to use these experiences to take with me when I qualify. I have developed skills specific to my career in engineering as well as other, broader skills that will benefit my career.”
