Local student becomes apprentice

Megan Handley

Bridgwater student, Megan, attended the first Young HPC event in 2017 and proceeded to start her apprenticeship as a Project Controls Technician in March 2018. Megan realised that the Project Controls Apprenticeship would be the perfect role to build a career that could be transferable all over the world and across different industries.


"A HPC apprenticeship offers young people a way of getting into an industry that I believe would otherwise be difficult. It also provides an amazing way to be able to study and learn, whilst networking with knowledgeable and like-minded people, something you wouldn’t do just by going to college."

Joshua Seymour

Joshua, former Robert Blake Science College student, joined the project in 2016 as an IT Support Apprentice. He is now a Technical Governance Lead for Kier BAM. In role he ensures that the company is complying with the Office of Nuclear Regulation (ONR), in terms of Information Security and Data Protection Law, such as the General Data Protection Regulation.


"Working at HPC is a privilege. Even as an apprentice, you are leaving a legacy for what will be a completed nuclear power station. The skills you learn and the people you meet will stay with you for a lifetime, giving you the professional competence you need for wherever you may end up."
