Matthew Dale – from Grimsby Institute to Avionics Engineering

Fabrication & Welding learner, Matthew Dale, is celebrating securing an Apprenticeship with BAE Systems after enrolling at the Institute last September.

BAE Systems is a global defence, aerospace and security company employing around 83,400 people worldwide. Their wide-ranging products and services cover air, land and naval forces, as well as advanced electronics, security, information technology, and support services.

Nineteen-year-old Matthew chose to train at the Institute after one of his friends recommended it and he’s thoroughly enjoyed his time with us. Matthew said: “I saw that BAE were building a new training academy at Humberside Airport so I applied through their website. I’m now going to train in Avionics Engineering for the next two years.

“Everything I’ve learnt at the Institute has been really practical so it’s going to help me when I get there. Hopefully this is going to a lead to a good career. It’s been brilliant at the Institute and everyone has been very welcoming.”
