Exxon Apprentice for Finley
Sixth form student secures four-year engineering apprenticeship with Exxon
Sixth former Finley, has secured an apprenticeship with Exxon, at their Fawley Refinery, starting this September.
Year 13 student Finley’s four-year apprenticeship is in mechanical engineering, with the first year studying at college in Southampton, and then onto level three training followed by day release, spending four days at the company and one day at college.
Finley said: “An apprenticeship really appealed to me because I am far better at practical study and it’s a bonus you get paid to work!”
“I joined South Wiltshire UTC in Year 12 because its engineering facilities were far better than anywhere else. It is also really easy to get to and offered the subjects I wanted to study.”
“I am currently studying Engineering Level 3 Extended Diploma. Since joining the UTC, I have made good friends and I am surrounded by like-minded people who prefer technical study.”
