Adam Ashworth is training for an NVQ Level 3 in Aeronautical Engineering with the Army

Army opens door to new opportunities  

Adam Ashworth, 28, from Burnley, is serving in the 7th Air Assault Battalion, Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, and is training for an NVQ Level 3 in Aeronautical Engineering. After working in the civilian engineering sector for a number of years he decided that he wanted to pursue a more challenging and rewarding career. After speaking to his local Army recruiting office, he decided that a career as an aircraft technician would suit him perfectly.

Adam said: “When I was told what a career as an Army aircraft technician would entail I knew it was the right path for me to take. Being in the Army has given me the opportunity to do things I never thought I would be able to do. I have had the opportunity to compete in the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineer’s boxing championships, run for my battalion field gun team and complete a freefall course in Cyprus. The Army has also greatly increased my confidence, especially when speaking in front of people, and improved my organisational skills and self-discipline.

“My advice to those joining the Army is to work hard, set clear goals and aim high. After completing my apprenticeship I want to do a degree in Aeronautical Engineering and become a forward repair team commander.”
