Shortlisted nominee of the 2014 WISE Apprentice Award
13 November 2014
Christina Dines, Technical Apprentice in Electronic Engineering, BAE Systems
Since becoming a BAE apprentice, Christina has initiated a buddy scheme which offers female apprentices a sympathetic ear to confide any worries or concerns, and now leads the Local Apprentice Council. She recently ran an Engineering Taster Week for forty Year 12 students including group projects, presentations and tours, all with the intention of promoting engineering, BAE, and apprenticeships.
“Real apprentices talking to students about real apprenticeships show that this route is not second best or lacks prospects and I want to be part of this changing landscape”.
