WGM Engineering inspire FVC students

WGM Engineering provided the tools recently for Forth Valley College students to apply for Modern Apprenticeships at the well-established firm.

The purpose of the event on Thursday 29 November in the Falkirk Campus Main Hall, was to give Pre-apprentices, full-time NC and HNC students an insight into what WGM Engineering do in the form of a Q&A session.

Attending on behalf of WGM was Electrical Director Gareth Fudge, Rachel Martin – a former HND Measurement and Control student who then went on to complete a MA in Engineering Construction Design and Draughting – who is now employed as part of the Projects Team and Fraser Preston – a second Year Mechanical MA.

Gareth, said: “Ahead of our planned recruitment in 2019, this was a fantastic opportunity for WGM to offer the students an insight into our modern apprenticeship program. WGM are a self-delivery organisation that offers a comprehensive apprenticeship, with opportunity for continued development”.

Rachel, added: “The time I have spent working through my MA/SVQ3 through FVC while at WGM has given me a wide range of knowledge and experience that ranges from working as a Trainee Designer to a Trainee Project Engineer. Since been given these opportunities this has allowed me to progress within WGM and determine where I am best suited within the business and I believe personally I can work to my full potential.”

Lorraine Kerr, FVC Business Development Partner, said: “The Q&A session presented an excellent opportunity for pre-apprentices and full-time engineering NC and HNC students to learn more about what our industry partners WGM Engineering, can offer MAs and the next steps for them to progress to a Modern Apprenticeship. WGM have an excellent track record with all MAs coming through the programme to date securing a job offer.”
