Frida Nzaba: Manufacturing Engineering Level 4 Apprenticeship, Rolls-Royce
With her family expecting her to follow the traditional route to university, Frida focused on her aim of becoming a chartered engineer and identified an apprenticeship as the best option for her. Since beginning at Rolls-Royce in 2013, she has had the chance to work in different departments, undertake various technical and practical projects, and develop a professional network.
As a Rolls-Royce and Nottinghamshire County STEM Ambassador, Frida participates in various careers events, and has returned to her old school to help run the engineering club and talk to students about their GCSE options. She says: “I am passionate and determined to make a difference in the way STEM subjects are advertised in less privileged schools. By integrating the support from professional institutions with schools, we can give young girls a glimpse into the exciting world of engineering.”
