Apprenticeships Case Studies
LCB apprentice Rebecca Munro beat hundreds of students at the National BTEC Awards to achieve overall winner in the BTEC Apprentice of the Year (16-18 year category).
Lecturer Vicky Patterson says: “I can honestly say that Rebecca’s contribution to apprenticeships and to the promotion of STEM subjects, is absolutely phenomenal. She works tirelessly for the benefit of others and is a very worthy winner of this award. She recently passed her Technician Professional Review (EngTech MICE) and was so impressive at her interview, that she has been shortlisted by the Institution of Civil Engineers for the Jean Venables Medal.
Rebecca was also named the ‘Best Apprentice Under 25’ at the Women in Construction Awards. Her list of accolades just keep growing!
Rebecca, who is a Technician Permanent Way Engineer at Mott MacDonald in York, travels over 110 miles to attend college one day a week.
Rebecca says: “I chose to complete an apprenticeship in civil engineering because of the positive impact that engineering has on society. I also get a great deal of personal satisfaction from seeing my designs become a reality. My engineering apprenticeship has enabled me to work alongside a range of experienced people, developing work based knowledge, whilst still studying one day a week at college. My apprenticeship is so varied and I really enjoy every aspect of it. Winning the BTEC Apprentice of the Year award is something that I am very proud of and once I complete the higher level apprenticeship, I hope to embark on the new degree level apprenticeship, so that I can keep progressing and learning.”
