Alastair Beaman – HNC/HND in General Engineering in his own words

Before Telford College

I was a student at Bridgnorth Endowed looking for a career in engineering. I took on an apprenticeship at GKN and with it came the course at Telford College.

Studying at Telford College was really useful, giving me the sound knowledge and understanding of mechanical engineering I needed. Without it I wouldn’t have been able to make the progress at GKN that I wanted.

After Telford College

After college, I completed a BEng Hons Degree at University of Wolverhampton. This, plus the work-based experience, took me on to become senior engineer at GKN. Then I moved into a program manager role, based in the USA, and I’m now back in the UK as site quality assurance manager for GKN Telford.

Adam Howse – HNC in Electrical Engineering in his own words

Before Telford College

It was hard to find employment in my previous career pathway, but my employer offered me the opportunity to re-train as an electrical engineer. An HNC or HND course would normally take four years to complete studying part-time, but with the unique  accelerated plan I will be qualified after three years of study.

At Telford College

I have enjoyed my time at Telford College as it has allowed me to meet lots of great, like-minded people. The friendly  atmosphere and teachers who are always willing to help combine to create a superb learning environment.

After Telford College

The course helped me improve my knowledge and skills to become a key member of the electrical design team, working on exciting new projects within the nuclear industry.
