Top marks in college have opened the door to a career in mechanical engineering for Rhondda learner Morgan, landing him an apprenticeship with a leading manufacturer.
21-year-old Morgan Lewis, from Ton Pentre, has secured a three-year apprenticeship with FSG Tool and Die Ltd – one of the largest privately owned design and build toolmaking companies in Europe – after his grades and dedication to the trade impressed bosses at the firm.
With the help of Coleg y Cymoedd’s Enhanced Engineering Programme (EEP), a one-year programme at the Rhondda campus which is designed to equip learners with the skills they need to enter the engineering industry, Morgan has achieved a distinction in his Level 3 mechanical engineering qualification. Morgan said: “I’m over the moon to have been offered this placement with FSG. I feel so lucky to have found a job that I’m passionate about which inspired me to achieve the best possible grades I could in order to progress at FSG.”
