If you’ve been keeping a close eye on us over the last couple of months you may have noticed that we have a new member of our team. Josh Robinson, a former sixth form student of the ENL UTC, has joined us as a Business and Marketing Apprentice, as part of an exciting 18 month apprenticeship opportunity.
Josh, who joined the year 10 cohort in 2016, originally had an interest in welding and found that he couldn’t miss out on the unique opportunity to study for an engineering qualification, alongside of gaining his GCSE’s, in an environment that has been built with the purpose of progressing young individuals into industry.
“What I enjoyed most about the school as a student, was that we got to go out and interact with local companies whilst developing our projects in the schools workshops and on specialist computer software.”
Initially a shy individual, Josh grew in confidence and over the course of the three years that he studied with us, became a recognised character amongst both staff members and industry partners. From this Josh, helped to represent the ENL UTC as a Student Ambassador at a multitude of different events from the 2018 Christmas Lights Switch On to talking on BBC Radio Humberside and meeting with local MP’s to assisting with open events!
The dedication and passion that Josh has shown towards the school has now led to an 18 month apprenticeship with Ongo and training provider CERT, where he will complete a Level 3 Diploma in Digital Marketing, alongside of his day-to-day duties for the Business Engagement Lead and Marketing Officer.
“I am really looking forward to developing my skills further with the ENL UTC and getting more involved in tailoring new and exciting projects for our students. My career path may have changed from being a welder but I want to be part of showcasing this industry to more young people, to help them discover their passion.”
