Suzanne’s making sparks!

Budding engineer Suzanne Smith has been given the chance to spend a week working with one of Shropshire’s biggest manufacturing companies as part of her studies at Telford College. Suzanne Smith from Bridgnorth has secured a week-long placement with BAE Systems, which handles multi-million pound contracts at the Armed Forces’ Hadley Castle site.

The 17-year-old, a former student of Bridgnorth Endowed School, moved to Telford College after completing an engineering GCSE qualification at school. After completing her Level 2 engineering course at the Haybridge campus, she has now moved onto the Level 3 programme.

Suzanne says she’s been enjoying the practical side of her studies: “Welding has been the best unit I so far – it’s very practical and logical, and I’ve developed welding skills which I’ll use in my career.”

Sam Jones of Telford College adds, “Suzanne’s placement at BAE Systems will give her priceless career insight and a taste of what professional engineering will entail.”
