Apprentice engineer finds his career calling

11 January, 2019

Aged just 18, apprentice engineer Miguel Mari is pursuing his dream job as an inventor and problem solver with Rotech, the designer of feeding and coding systems.


Mari already has high ambitions to make himself indispensable to the SME, and has taken charge of several technology challenges, including designing the lighting rig featured on Rotech’s recent stand at PPMA Show 2018.

He is the third pupil from The Marlborough Science Academy, St Albans to embark on an apprenticeship with the machinery maker after Rotech’s managing director Chris Baker strengthened links with the school.

Positive impression

In November 2016, the year 11 student joined his engineering classmates at an open day hosted by Rotech. The event made an immediate and positive impression on Mari. “It helped me to realise before taking my GCSEs that it was possible to take a non-traditional route into engineering and that there is a lack of qualified applicants with the practical skills,” he reflected.

Starting the two-year apprenticeship a week before his GCSE results were announced, Mari attends college two days a week to study a BTEC in Electrical Engineering. “My alternative path was to take maths, physics and chemistry A levels,” he explained. “Although these subjects interested me, I figured that they would be too general and wouldn’t have helped me in reaching my end goal of designing machinery within such a short timeframe.”
