Every day is a learning day at Forth Valley College according to first year Engineering Modern Apprenticeship Rebecca McMillan (23).
Her training is sponsored by the ECITB, the statutory skills body for the engineering construction industry, on behalf of various partner companies
Rebecca, from Buckie, who works as an MA for Petrofac, said: “As I had not had any previous engineering experience prior to this apprenticeship, I am thoroughly enjoying the total change and the mixture of subjects. Since starting I have been studying a variety of practical and theory based subjects and am gaining numerous sets of new skills.
“The facilities provide exactly what is required for the course and gives us a feel of what the equipment could be like offshore. The lecturers are kind, positive and very knowledgeable, as most have worked in the industry previously.
“I don’t have a favourite part of the course so far as I love learning and, as my previous knowledge in most of the subjects has been none or very little, I have been constantly learning every day.
“The modern apprenticeship in Engineering offers amazing opportunities and is a well-recognised program. You will learn about the industry from the lecturers as well as all information for the required subjects.”
