Megan chose an apprenticeship because she enjoys learning by doing. Megan offers advice to future apprentices when she states “To females who are thinking about a future career in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), I would say that there are a lot of opportunities and help there, so don’t be afraid to embrace the opportunities in supporting you to follow your chosen career path. When I first learned that I could get a qualification in the Automotive Engineering sector by a mixture of on the job ‘hands on’ learning, college, and training in the classroom, I realised that apprenticeship was in my case the perfect career choice.”
This apprenticeship scholarship is unique to WWETB and demonstrates the importance of successful partnerships between the Automotive Industry and WWETB. Trevor Sinnott, Service to Business Manager in WWETB commented “This WWETB female scholarship a fantastic opportunity for female students who are registered in a Waterford or Wexford post primary school or further education and training centres (FET) in the calendar year 2023 to apply for a scholarship in one of the 25 different craft apprenticeships”.
