Youth Engineering is excited to welcome Annabelle, the latest edition to our team.

Annabelle is studying towards the level two accredited Engineering Operative apprenticeship qualification. Youth Engineering are partnered with Springfield Training who are responsible for delivering the qualification.

The course will be completed within Bradbury Group’s facilities, and the home of Youth Engineering.


First impressions 

Annabelle joined Youth Engineering earlier this month and is already impressing the senior members. Sharon, supervisor for YES expressed:

“Annabelle has been a pleasure to work with since joining the team. She brings a positive energy and is always eager to learn. Annabelle has all the tools to be a success with whatever career path she decides to take, and I’m looking forward to seeing her achieve her goals.”

Sharon has worked within the construction sector for over twenty years during which she has accumulated a wealth of experience. Sharing this knowledge with Annabelle will only accelerate her development.

It can be difficult and daunting at the best of times to enter a new environment, especially at such a young age. However, Annabel has taken to the task with undeniable assurance.

Confidence is key

Annabelle has taken to the role with confidence, which shows in her responses “I’ve really enjoyed being a part of Youth Engineering. The team has been really welcoming and they have helped me settle in right away. I feel like I’ve learned so much already and just want to keep learning”.

One of the most attractive components of the level two accredited Engineering Operative apprenticeship is the practical / theory split. The practical aspect accounts for 80% of the total qualification, which was a huge factor in Annabelle’s decision to join Youth Engineering “I’m much more of a hands-on person and prefer doing things; that’s how I learn. I’ve enjoyed Youth Engineering a lot as I feel like I’m always doing something”.


What the future holds

Annabelle will continue to learn and develop a host of essential engineering skills during her time with YES, these skills include welding, tool wielding, servicing machinery, fabrication, assembly, and much more.

Although it is still early in Annabelle’s engineering career, she admitted “I would like to move into Bradbury Group after I’ve finished my level 2; however, I’m not closing any doors to other career paths”.

We’re all excited to see what the future holds for Annabelle and cannot wait to see her achieve her first milestone.
