Alyssa Malcolmson from Shetland is loving her Engineering Modern Apprenticeship at Forth Valley College.
Her training is sponsored by the ECITB, the statutory skills body for the engineering construction industry, on behalf of various partner companies
Alyssa (18), who works for Aker Solutions, said: “College has been really good so far. So far we've been learning a lot of theory both in the classroom and the workshop, getting a basic understanding of the subjects. The facilities at college are great, and I'm looking forward to spending more time in the plant room.
“For me the best bit about college is the time in the workshop. I learn so much better in a hands on situation and I find it really interesting. The Engineering MA programme is such a great opportunity! You get paid to learn and you get a great job at the end of it.”
