Along with four other Newman students, Katie Mulkern, formerly of Leyland St Mary’s, has successfully gained a place on a BAE Apprenticeship as part the Higher Project Control Scheme.
Katie’s apprenticeship will start on 5th September, where she will join the Military Air and Information Department. Katie’s success follows a challenging application process that saw her take part in numerous tests that asses your numeracy, literacy and logic, both individually and working as part of a team alongside other candidates.
When she starts, Katie’s job will entail travelling between sites and staying at RAF bases, learning how to identify key issues within a project and make effective decisions to ensure that an order stays on track and the outcome is successful. It will also enable Katie to study for a fully funded degree in Project Control with the University of Lancaster.
Katie said: “The initial application is the most important part, it’s vital that you dedicate a lot of time and sure that you have put a lot of thought into your answers and I would suggest re-drafting a lot before you apply! I wanted to work for BAE because they’re a very caring, fresh thinking company that really invest in each of their employees and I am excited to see where the future, under their expert guidance with lead.”
