Two Coleg Cambria students have landed prestigious degree apprenticeships with one of the world’s top aerospace engineering firms.
Harvey Clare and Max Davies began their new roles at Airbus Broughton last month. Both 18 years old and former pupils at Darland High School in Rossett. Harvey will take on a Business Management Degree Apprenticeship, while Max is studying an Engineering Degree Apprenticeship, delivered in partnership with Swansea University.
The Wrexham pair also took the same A Levels at Coleg Cambria’s Yale 6thand look forward to starting this next chapter together. Max achieved an A* in Maths, A* in Physics and A in Business, while Harvey secured an A in Maths, B in Physics, and B in Business.
An Incredible Experience
“We’ve known each for a long time, so it has been great to support one another through the application process and now on to the apprenticeships. We both did a Level 2 Engineering BTEC at high school and got a taste for the aerospace sector, so it went from there,” said Max.
Harvey added “Airbus is a huge organisation and the perfect place to lay the foundations for our careers in the sector. Thank you to everyone at Yale 6th for your support – this is going to be an incredible experience for us both.”
Curriculum Lead for Yale Sixth and a Lecturer in A Level Business, Mel Henry, said: “It is fantastic to see students from Yale 6th progress on to degree apprenticeships.
“We are proud of Max and Harvey, whose skills and talents have been recognised in such a competitive field. We wish them every success for the future and know they will go on to have fantastic careers.”
Coleg Cambria and partners deliver a range of apprenticeships with industry leaders, giving participants the opportunity to develop their skills while receiving academic and financial support.
International Tattoo and Trade Exhibition Returns
A celebration of the British military raising money for war veterans returns to Coleg Cambria this month.
Last year’s inaugural British International Tattoo and trade exhibition held at the Yale site in Wrexham was a great success. This year’s show – The North Wales Military Music Pageant: A Reel of Remembrance – will play for one night only in aid of The Not Forgotten Association, a charity working to support veterans and combat isolation and loneliness amongst the Armed Forces community for the last 100 years.
Among those to appear are The Regimental Band and Corps of Drums of The Royal Welsh Fusiliers, The Regimental Mascots of The British Army, The Royal Welch Fusiliers Corps of Drums Association, The Military Wives Choir, Batala Drums Bangor, and The Emma May School of Irish Dance Connah’s Quay.
Also on stage will be soloist Ava Gordon Butler, direct from playing the lead role of Matilda in Matilda: The Musical and young Fiona in Shrek the Musical.
Another Amazing Event
Producer Gareth Butler is delighted to return to NE Wales with the production, and said: “It is such a joy to be working with such a wonderful and diverse cast, and there are a few more surprises waiting in the wings. Military vehicles, motorcycles, regimental associations, and veteran’s charities will be in attendance, displaying the vital work they do for our veterans – it’s going to be another amazing event.
David Cowley, Chairman of The Not Forgotten Association, was in agreement, and said: “We are delighted the British International Tattoo has chosen to support The Not Forgotten once again as not only are military concerts and pageants an important part of UK culture, but the concert’s motto also fits what the charity strives to achieve: Hospitalitatem Honorare! To Entertain and Honour.”
The event takes place on Saturday October 22nd from 6.30pm.
