This involved the first year based at Northbrook College completing NVQ level 3 and BTEC certificates in aerospace engineering, whilst developing basic hand skills in both sheet metal and avionic work. I then went on to complete all modules for my CAA issued EASA Cat A and B1 licences, whilst being placed on ‘on job training’ within engineering departments, and at both line and hangar maintenance facilities. I spent the final year of my apprenticeship based as a technician at London Gatwick Hanger, working on both Virgin and Easy jet fleet.

Kitchen Assistant (part time) (January 2007 to September 2007)
Whilst still in education I worked as a part-time kitchen assistant, where I helped cook and prepare meals. This job gave me my first real insight into health and safety in the workplace.
