“I was eager to continue along the path towards Electrical Engineering, having started a qualification in South Africa before moving to the UK in 2006. When I moved to Herefordshire in 2015, I knew this was the right time to restart my education and with the pace of technology, my knowledge needed updating in order to pursue my ideal career as an Electrical Engineer.
I started on the Level 3 Engineering course as a part-time student. I had to balance my learning alongside working and raising a family, and the flexibility of the course certainly assisted with that. As soon as I finished level 3 I was ready to move on to the Electrical and Electronic Control Engineering HND.
Over the past 4 years I have learnt a lot, and while the course hasn’t been easy at times, the teachers are really helpful and can offer the assistance you need. The hard work is worth it in the end, I have enjoyed the practical elements of the course, as it allows me to get hands-on and put the theoretical elements into practice.
Now that I am coming to the end of the qualification, I have already secured a job as a Test and Measurement Engineer for a local company, Steatite Antennas, and I look forward to putting my knowledge to good use.”
