It’s a great chance to start earning a salary while you’re training and getting the workplace experience that Employers are looking for.

An Apprenticeship at Burnley College Sixth Form Centre was an easy choice for Tyler with Themis being recognised as one of the very best places for Engineering Apprenticeships, by Employers and Apprentices alike.

Interested in the world of Engineering, Tyler became employed by WEC Group to then become the Welding Coordinator, giving him the chance to develop new management, communication and team-building skills which has helped him greatly in his career development.

The highlight of his Apprenticeship was travelling to Kazan, in Russia, to represent GB in the WorldSkills contest, against the very best young Welding and Fabrication Engineers from across the world.

“The impact it has had on my skills and my profile in the Engineering Industry simply can’t be measured.”
