The best career paths are opening up now and the first steps are to sign up The Bedford College Group where T-Levels, apprenticeships, full and part-time courses await leading up to a full BSc in Engineering.

Inspirational staff at the group include Helen Dows who lectures in BTEC Engineering Level 3 and HNC/D Engineering preparing young people for careers in the Corby area which gain like Weetabix, RS and Tata.

She said: “I wanted to join the Royal Navy but women weren’t allowed on board in those days, luckily things have moved on in so many ways.”

Now she is encouraging young women of the 2020s to consider well-paid and worthwhile careers in engineering.

One of her former students has just joined in the MOD to pursue her dream of life in the military now women are welcome.
