EngineeringAside from the theoretical and practical skills engineering students gain while studying the course, Cameron attended trips to engineering museums and local companies to get a feel of the engineering profession first-hand. In addition to this, having many external guest speakers come in and talk about their profession and the engineering industry gave Cameron the true view of what manufacturing is all about.
Cameron was a pupil at Rhyddings Business and Enterprise School before studying a Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma in Manufacturing at Burnley College Sixth Form Centre.
Having gained skills across the spectrum of Engineering including Fabrication, Welding, CAD/Drawing, Maths, Science and Materials, Cameron became a professional in the field of Manufacturing.
The College boosted his employability prospects, allowing him to progress onto University study and work within a Degree Apprenticeship role. He now works for BAE Systems while reading Aerospace Engineering in hopes of becoming a highly skilled Aeronautical Engineer with a world-leading employer, working on some of the most advanced aircraft.
Robert teaches BTEC Engineering at Levels 1, 2 & 3 and City and Guilds at Levels 2 & 3. He also holds an ABC Teaching Qualification in Fabrication and Welding, helping apprentices and full-time students alike reach their true potential.
Robert has currently spent 5 years at Burnley College Sixth Form Centre, having spent 18 months prior at Rochdale College with engineering apprentices. Altogether, he has a full 12 years of experience in industry, ready to pass down the knowledge to all his students.
“I am enthusiastic about Engineering. The past 20 years have been nothing but enjoyment for me. I love the idea of being a guide for people who were in the exact same position I was in. With students just as passionate about Engineering as me, there’s nothing I would change.”
