Sarah Williamson is a first year full-time apprentice employed by Thales UK. After completing her AS Levels, Sarah realised her main interests were within science and technology and so she joined Thales UK’s engineering apprentice scheme in September 2007 as a technician apprentice.
As part of her apprenticeship Sarah is currently studying a range of subjects at Central Sussex College, including electrical instillation, electronics and electrical principles, maintenance and hand skills, mathematics, business and communication.
She says: “I enjoy learning practical skills, such as circuiting, that I will be able to use in my future career and day-to-day life.”
