Heather Gerrard moved to Edinburgh last year to start an Oil & Gas Technical Apprentice Programme (OGTAP) apprenticeship with OPITO. Heather attends Edinburgh College as part of her apprenticeship and we caught up with her about how her experience to date:
‘I always had an interest in engineering and this programme provides a great opportunity to get into the industry as well as teaching me the practical and technical skills I needed for the job. The plan is to complete my HNC and become a fully qualified Instrument Technician and to make the most of any opportunities that come my way.’
