Freya Johnson Engineering Apprentice at Trafford College

A young apprentice will follow her father’s footsteps into the Engineering industry after securing a prestigious apprenticeship with Kellogg’s and Trafford College.

Freya Johnson (16) from Irlam, was in her final year at High School and completing her GCSEs when she decided that she wanted to embark on a career in Engineering, taking inspiration from her father and her grandfather before him, both of whom have worked in the industry all their lives.

Having always favoured practical work over academic subjects, Freya had heard a lot about apprenticeships and when she discovered that the multinational food manufacturing company was on the lookout for fresh new talent, she didn’t delay in submitting her application.

Despite being the only girl currently enrolled on the first year of her five-year apprenticeship, Freya has thrown herself into the programme and isn’t fazed by working alongside her male counterparts in the busy College workshops.

She comments, “Having only just left school, I hadn’t had any experience in the field of Engineering when I applied for the apprenticeship, but I loved the idea of working in the industry and especially for a world renowned company like Kellogg’s. I’m especially happy to be following in the footsteps of my father and grandfather.

“Coming to College is very different to school. You get treated like an adult and your tutors place a lot of trust in you and your abilities. I’d definitely recommend studying at Trafford College and especially on an apprenticeship.  This is definitely the course for me.”
