Rebecca is now studying her Level 3 apprenticeship in the outstanding training facilities at Cornwall College Camborne.
“I would certainly recommend this type of career to other young girls,
don’t be put off thinking you can’t do it. Once qualified you’ll always
have work, perhaps have the opportunity to move abroad and I think
more girls will make the industry a better place to work.”
