“I have been studying for 1 year on a level three engineering course whilst working part time at Progressive. My course was a general engineering course which covered basic engineering knowledge in sectors such as mechanical, electrical and aerospace, and practical lessons on mills and lathes as well as TIG welding with basic knowledge of AutoCAD. It was a really good way to kick-start my engineering career”
