Engineering apprentice a winner at the National Apprenticeship Awards 2019

Tatiana Peters, a mechanical engineering apprentice, has won The Royal Navy Award for Advanced Apprentice of the Year 2019 in the National Apprenticeship Awards 2019.

At a ceremony held on 27th November in London, Tatiana won the coveted award ahead of finalists from eight other English regions, following a series of regional ceremonies across the country in September.

Following her win Tatiana said, “I am thankful for this award - grateful is an understatement. I am so overwhelmed and astonished by this achievement and honestly cannot believe it. I am so proud and extremely happy that so many people believed in me.”

Reflecting on her the start to her career in engineering Tatiana said, “Comparing myself at the start of my apprenticeship to where I am now, I can see how I have blossomed and grown. I am confident, skilled and most importantly, I am an engineer.“

Tatiana adds, “Being an engineer is not just wearing a hard hat and a high-vis jacket, and I want to smash that stereotype. Engineering is more than what meets the eye and that’s the message I want to share so that I can inspire the next generation of engineers, especially for young girls who are looking at STEM subjects and pathways. It’s onwards and upwards from here!”

Tatiana recently completed her apprenticeship scheme and is now a Mechanical Design Engineer with the company.
