Personal Statement

I joined Durham University, within the mechanical workshop of the Department of Physics in 2011, as a Modern Apprentice. After a period of training, and day release study at TDR training, I became a qualified technician in 2015.

I continued my day release studies at Sunderland College to gain a merit grade for HNC in Mechanical Engineering. I have been accepted on a course to do a degree in Mechanical Engineering on day release study.

I am a member of the department logistics team.
