Emily Swatton: Mechanical Engineering Advanced Apprentice, Culham Centre for Fusion Energy

Emily knew she wanted to follow the apprenticeship route to develop her love of engineering so, following a lack of support from her school, she sought out a female science teacher and asked her to explain her route into science and what qualifications were available. She is now undertaking a Mechanical Engineering Advanced Apprenticeship at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, where she took part in an Apprenticeships Launchpad event displaying robotic arms. She has given talks to students about apprenticeships in science and what it’s like to be an engineer. As a Girl Guide, Emily led an event building cranes out of simple resources to lift cups of water. She also showed Performing Arts pupils how backstage sound and lighting worked. She says: “I have high aspirations for my future career in engineering and would be honoured to inspire other young women to follow in my footsteps.”
