Cameron, Engineering

I’ve really enjoyed the opportunity to do both academic and technical qualifications.

Cameron Green is set to fly high having secured a degree apprenticeship with global manufacturer British Aerospace.

The 18-year-old has achieved a distinction* in a technical qualification in engineering and A Level grades A and B in maths and physics. He joined the UTC in Year 12 at the age of 16.

Now he will learn and train in the workplace whilst studying towards a Degree in Engineering without having to cover the costs of tuition fees.

Cameron said: “To be able to earn while I learn with a global company and get a degree is fantastic as it is quite competitive to secure a place. I like problem solving and that’s why I love engineering.

“The hands-on technical learning at the UTC has really helped prepare me for my career giving me the skills that the industry needs, and I’ve really enjoyed the opportunity to do both academic and technical qualifications.”

Alex Reynolds, Principal, UTC Sheffield City Centre, said: “Cameron has demonstrated an excellent level of commitment since joining the UTC that has resulted in the exceptional achievement he has gained in his exams this summer. “

He added: “We are extremely excited to see how his career progresses with British Aerospace and I am sure he will experience the same success in his future career that we have witnessed during his time at the UTC.”
