Spotlight on Female Engineering Apprenticeships for International Women’s Day
Coleg Sir Gâr are proud to highlight the achievements of two of their apprentices Taylor Hoskins and Zoe Evans, who are succeeding in their chosen careers to become engineers.
Taylor is an Electrical Instrumentation Technician for Wales & West Utilities. She is in the second year of her electrical/electronic engineering apprenticeship at Coleg Sir Gâr, through Training Services Wales. She is currently completing her level 3 diploma at college and her NVQ in the workplace.
Taylor was initially drawn to engineering as she enjoys problem solving and finds the challenges she faces as an apprentice, both in work and at college, rewarding. She hopes to continue her studies and secure a permanent position in Wales & West Utilities.
Zoe, an Installation Technician for Aim Altitude, Dafen, is in the third and final year of her mechanical engineering apprenticeship at Coleg Sir Gâr and is completing her NVQ in the workplace.
Zoe initially wanted to study bio engineering but changed her mind after transferring from A levels to the full time enhanced engineering programme at the college. During the work experience, as part of the enhanced programme, Zoe was offered an apprenticeship with Aim. Zoe hopes to continue her studies, possibly completing a degree apprenticeship through Coleg Sir Gâr.
Both learners hope to continue their studies and achieve a permanent position with their respective employers.
