Caitlin Sweeney was handed the opportunity at CPA Engineered Solutions Limited and hopes to engineer a bright future after successfully gaining a four-year apprenticeship.
The Shotts firm offered the 19-year-old a place at their Calderhead Road base following an impressive interview. Caitlin, from Airdrie, said:“I saw something in school about women going into engineering and I thought it was really interesting and decided that’s what I wanted.
“I went on to study mechanical engineering at the City of Glasgow College for a year. I chose CPA because I really enjoyed my interview with them. It’s a great company.”
Caitlin’s mentor, engineering manager Rodger Kerr, is delighted with his young protégée.
He said:“We aim to be forward-thinking and Caitlin was definitely the right candidate.”
