Level 3 - Engineering Apprentice at BMW



Owen is currently studying a Level 3 Engineering Advanced Apprenticeship programme at Swindon College.


He is passionate about Engineering, and started the apprenticeship after completing a BTEC Level 3 Engineering with Swindon College, having always wanted to work for a well-known company. The apprenticeship programme allows him to build on the skills he already has, and learn new ones in the workplace.


Owen said, 

I like the people I work with at BMW, and I enjoy the apprenticeship course. The staff in the department and my tutors have been very helpful and supportive, and the courses here at Swindon College have good structure to provide both practical experience and theory knowledge in engineering.


In the future, Owen looks forward to completing his apprenticeship, and wants to continue to work with MINI, while studying the next level of his course. He also hopes to pass on his skills to future students.
