A new cohort of students have started their engineering future at CATCH Academy in Stallingborough.
The students, who have joined the Academy from local schools and Colleges across Scunthorpe and Grimsby, are working towards Level 2 and 3 electrical and mechanical engineering programmes as well as the prestigious Level 3 Introduction to Engineering Construction programme.
Bob Padley, Head of Engineering at the CATCH Academy said, “We offer our students the opportunity to learn in a real-life environment, giving them an insight into industry. We work with our students supporting them to build the skillset that the engineering industry requires, helping them to take their first steps on to an exciting and interesting career in engineering.”
Taught in specialist workshops, the students will build the practical and theoretical skills they need to progress on to apprenticeships with local employers or on to university.
Former Oasis Academy Immingham student Jack Taylor is studying a Level 3 Diploma in Electrical Engineering at the CATCH Academy, he said, “The Academy workshops are set out like in real-life industry, you build practical skills rather than being just behind a desk. It offers great qualifications and I am acquiring a range of skills before hopefully going on to an apprenticeship.”
Former Tollbar Academy student Will Wade added, ““I chose to study at CATCH due to the expanding industry and a greater amount of jobs in engineering. Over the next year, I will put in an exceptional amount of work and dedication in order to expand my knowledge and then complete an apprenticeship.”
