Allison Curry, Head of Guidance, tells us about Catherine’s success in securing a Level 6 degree apprenticeship with Mott MacDonald.
I am delighted to say that, for a second year running (last year it was Jonah BC), Year 13 student Catherine P has secured a Level 6 degree apprenticeship.
These are highly competitive (frequently more competitive than Oxbridge) both in terms of the high numbers of students applying and the rigorous and arduous multiple interview/selection process involved. They are also currently a key focus of UCAS and the emerging directions of university education in the future.
Catherine P has been offered a Level 6 degree apprenticeship with Mott MacDonald in Civil Engineering. Based in the Water Consultancy division she will be focusing on water and the environment over a 6 year period, 80% of the time at Mott MacDonald Cambridge and 20% in the University setting. The award comes with a full time salary, university fees paid, a full BSc Hons degree at the end, work experience and a guaranteed placement with the company on completion.
We are delighted to have supported Catherine in her journey towards obtaining this award alongside the ongoing support of our collaborations with AIM apprenticeships. Aim were not only a valuable contributor to our recent Careers Fair but are also actively involved in preparing sixth form students for the interview process alongside working with students at a KS4 level as well.
