Jasmine recently worked with the Department for Education and participated in their social media campaign around raising the profile of what they can offer and why young people should consider them as a compelling alternative to university. She produced a video which explained her role as an apprentice and gave advice to young people who are feeling unsure about which educational route to take.
In recognition of her efforts to help others and raise awareness of engineering and apprenticeships, she was awarded the impressive accolade of ‘Top 50 Women in Engineering award (WE50)’ for current and former apprentices by the Women in Engineering Society (WES). This led to her being involved a lot more with WES and she was recently chosen to be on the newly formed WES Apprentice board where she will be able to help make the organisation more accessible to apprentices, reflect their concerns and priorities and provide input into WES Trustees and staff.
As well as their drive to give female apprentices within engineering a platform to be heard, Jasmine supports WES’s commitment to improving local communities and building better places for the whole of society.
With all of this under her belt so early in her career, we know the future is bright for Jasmine. We just hope we can hold on to her before she’s snapped up to work in front of the camera with all her filming experience!
