Rebekah Van Weerdenburg, Undergraduate Apprentice, Airbus
I visit various areas of the business and provide my input and knowledge to these areas as well as learning various different aspects of Airbus.
I am currently studying for a foundation degree in Aeronautical Engineering whilst working with Airbus.
It is important to have pride in your work and have an interest and ideas of areas to improve the business.
My favourite subjects in school were: Maths, Science, Sport and History.
I did A-Levels in: Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry and Physics. I considered University and studying a degree in Physics but ultimately wanted a job in engineering.
I chose the Undergraduate apprenticeship rather than other apprenticeships as I wanted a degree qualification, and gain the experience of working in industry. Also I prefer the improvements and support roles as opposed to constructing the aircraft.
