Paige, 19, joined Applied Scintillation Technologies in Harlow as an Engineering Apprentice, studying at Harlow College. She is currently working towards the completion of a Higher Apprenticeship, having already completed her Intermediate and Advanced Apprenticeships.

Paige said: "Following the completion of my Intermediate Apprenticeship I am now a Junior Engineer with lots of responsibilities. My Apprenticeship required dedication and I had to overcome personal challenges, but the enjoyment I continue to get from working in my chosen field is immense. Day-to-day I am responsible for making jigs and fixtures as well as organising sub-contractors. I am continuing to develop and am working towards my Higher Apprenticeship. I hope my success with inspire others to join an Apprenticeship and gain experience, knowledge and have fun whilst earning a living."
