What brought you to the NCC?
I joined the apprenticeship programme because I was interested in composites and liked the idea of hands-on experience.
What are the top three things you enjoy about your job?
The workload, the type of work done and my colleagues.
I have worked mostly in the cleanroom doing prepreg layup of parts – that’s the moulding process for composite materials, where layers of resin and other reinforcement materials are overlayed in a precise position by hand. Another project includes demoulding for the Wing of Tomorrow programme, which aims to explore a radical new approach to the design of aircraft wings.
I am also working on includes a RC car project where we aim to make a fully functional remote-controlled car with composites. This includes making the chassis and car cover using different manufacturing techniques such resin fusion and more prepreg lamination.
What are your next career steps?
I look forward to completing this apprenticeship and completing my HNC (Higher National Certificate).
