With a touch of jet propulsion, Loughborough College’s Chair of Governors found her interest being sparked by electrical engineering to mark National Apprenticeship Week.
Audrey Traynor saw first hand what it takes to fire up a jet engine and was given a look into the mechanics of the turbine, before moving to a computer with College engineers to analyse data on the engine’s effects.
The taster was one of a range undertaken by the Executive and Governors this week encompassing apprenticeship opportunities at Loughborough College - including a busy lunchtime service in the restaurant kitchen, experiments as a lab technician, assisting in the nursery and even tackling the College switchboard.
“I found my time with the young engineers fascinating. It has been wonderful for our Governing Board and for the Executive to have the chance to get hands on with only some of the huge array of apprenticeships on offer through Loughborough College.
“From our elite AASE sport apprentices already finding success on the national and international stage to our students reaching for the stars with our unique Space Engineering degree apprenticeship in association with the National Space Academy, there is an outstanding range of opportunities at the College to earn and learn and to gain skills and qualifications at every level.”
