Switched on job

Sunday 16 July 2017

Dominic Spencer took up the chance of work experience at London Electronics near Sandy when it came up at Bedford College - and now has full-time job there.

He joined Bedford College after a year in the sixth form at Sandy Upper - wanting instead a more work-orientated environment. He did well on his full-time course and is now starting his career at the electronics company - after asking if he could do extra hours whilst there on work experience.


“I really enjoyed it there, I went for three days and then asked if I could stay for longer and then got a call to see if I wanted to go back for some extra training on soldering. I went.”

The company recognised someone who was keen and his job will offer him the chance move him on to HNC/HND training too. 

“I’m interested particularly in robotics and prosthetics and hope one day to be able to work in that field,” said Dominic of Everton, Mid Beds.
