Apprentice nominated onto WES board
We are delighted to share that one of our RME apprentices has been appointed onto the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) Apprentice Board. First year RME Mechatronics apprentice, Camila Rey da Rosa, will represent the voices of female engineering apprentices through WES.
Camila worked as a nurse in Brazil, before moving to the UK 10 years ago and discovering her passion for engineering. She found an apprenticeship would allow her to get the required qualifications and experience to start her engineering career. Recognising that the number of women engineering professionals in the UK could be higher, Camila is an enthusiastic advocate of women in engineering. She says “I want to inspire women to investigate the opportunities that engineering could offer to them. Being part of the WES Apprentice Board will allow me to spread the message that it is never too late to begin an apprenticeship, and to help change the perception of the industry". We wish Camilla every success on her appointment.
