Harvey Brown

Harvey joined Great Yarmouth College and successfully completed the BTEC extended Diploma in Engineering which helped open the door to an Apprenticeship at MSI-DS. After a thorough application and two interviews Harvey was delighted to secure his place.

Harvey now works 4 days a week at MSI and spends every Tuesday at College being taught new skills. Harvey enjoys the “broader view” his work environment gives him and the insight into a different field to oil and gas. He says that engineering now “is always on his mind, he can take problems at work to college and problems at college to work”.
