As a Maintenance Team Member at Toyota, Robyn uses a broad range of skills to maintain and upgrade the automated machines that manufacture the vehicles. She loves the variety.

“I do the full spectrum of work across all the machines: electrical and mechanical jobs, wiring, fabrication, programming, hardware changes – even making parts in the workshop”.

She chose the apprenticeship because she wanted something more practical and ‘hands on’ than a university degree. However, her initial interest wasn’t so much in engineering as in problem solving. “I’ve always been a logical thinker and STEM subjects were my favourite at school”.

She recently completed her apprenticeship but Robyn hasn’t finished learning. She is about to finish a HNC in general engineering and hopes to begin a workplace degree scheme.

Last summer she even went to Sao Paolo, Brazil to represent the UK at the World Skills competition. “I’ve had so many opportunities because of doing this apprenticeship”.
