Rebecca Clamp

Rebecca Clamp started as a Technician Apprentice in September 2009.  Unsure of whether or not to go to University and recognising that she learned best in a working environment, Rebecca decided to apply for an apprenticeship with us.  She recognised that it would give her the opportunity to gain qualifications, with the necessary National Certificates in Engineering as well as gaining vital on the job training.

“I currently work as a Materials Engineer which has given me the opportunity to work on Typhoon, F-35 and Hawk. During my three years with the company I have worked in a variety of different roles including concept demonstration where I looked at designing a bike for UK Sport, on Typhoon electric looms, Typhoon aircraft fitting and even the engineering support behind the demolition of a building on the site. All of which has given me excellent development.”

With a BTEC and an NVQ Level 2 already behind her, Rebecca is now working towards an HNC in Aeronautical Engineering.
