Ashleigh makes it to the finals

Engineering apprentice Ashleigh Sumner was recently one of the 5 finalists for the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Young Women Engineer Awards 2015 which was held at Park Plaza Riverbank, London.

Ashleigh, who is currently an apprentice with Siemens plc in Congleton and attends Macclesfield College for her Higher National Certificate course, previously completed her Level 3 Diploma in Engineering at the College. Ashleigh’s apprenticeship involves a four-year rotation of the Siemens business; this enables her to experience different roles whilst attending her college course one day a week.

As part of the nomination process Ashleigh starred in a video produced by the IET which can be viewed here.
