Hear from Mary Wallbank, a former Reaseheath apprentice

For National Apprenticeship Week we are celebrating our apprentices and their successes!

Mary Wallbank studied a Level 3 Agricultural Engineering apprenticeship at Reaseheath College back in 2016. She is now a Service Manager at Clarke and Pulman.

Mary said:

I chose an engineering apprenticeship rather than go to university after ‘A’ levels because employers look for practical skills as well as classroom knowledge.

Reaseheath’s agricultural engineering department has a high profile within the industry and its courses have a great balance between practical and academic sessions. Everything in my programme was relevant and my qualification has helped me to progress. I’ve learned transferable skills that I can take with me wherever I go.

I began my career with Guy Machinery in Lancashire, managing the spares storeroom and running promotions. Since then I’ve moved to Clarke and Pulman, a larger dealership, where I’ve been promoted from Parts Manager to Service Manager. I now oversee six agricultural engineering technicians, interact with customers and make sure that the workshops are running smoothly.
