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.
“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.”
