Congratulations to EN:Able Futures Apprentice Matthew Byford Loggie who has won the East Riding College Apprentice of the Year award for Civil Engineering 2022.
Matthew joined EN:Able Futures in June 2021 to do a Level 3 Civil Engineering Technician Apprenticeship while working for host company Alan Wood & Partners based at their Scarborough office.
Matthew had secured a university place for civil engineering but really wanted to get hands on experience first, so when he saw this apprenticeship advertised it appeared to be everything he was looking for. After almost one year in the role he has not been disappointed and feels happy that he made the right choice of doing an apprenticeship, and he is keen to progress to higher levels once he has completed his Level 3 qualification.
Matthew said: “I chose to take apprenticeship route in structural engineering as I wanted real hands-on experience of the job. You are improving all the time, jobs and projects are all varied so they are testing my skills and I am not faced with the same challenges twice."
Paul Steadman, Office Director at Alan Wood & Partners, commented: "Matthew is always willing to help, has a great attitude to learning and is keen to try new things to test and expand his knowledge. He is turning into a fantastic apprentice and we definitely need another ‘Matthew’ in all our offices."
In this video Matthew explains why he chose the apprenticeship route and what the work of Civil Engineering Technician involves.
