Fay Chicken has proved that if you’ve got the drive and the determination, Vocational Training can take you however far as you want to go. After completing her AS level qualifications, Fay opted to apply for an apprenticeship position and undertake vocational training.
Fay joined Oxford University on an Engineering training scheme. She says “I wanted to get involved in real work and more importantly learn some real life working skills that I could use in my job. I see so many people with engineering/electronic degrees but who are unable to use the equipment – training whilst I am working enables me to put into practice what I have learnt straight away and really apply it in my day to day work”.
In the very male-orientated environment of the engineering field, being the only girl on your course can be a daunting prospect, and although Fay was nervous she says “The ATG Training course tutor has been fantastic and really put my mind at rest – he is very open and transparent making it very easy to ask questions, despite being the only female.”
