Apprentices on the frontline - Emilia Reyes Pabon

This week (5-14 March) is British Science Week. To recognise this, we are sharing information about one of our apprentices, Emilia, who has been working on the Covid-19 vaccine in the Clinical BioManufacturing Facility. We think it's important to recognise the work that goes on behind the scenes and we're proud that our apprentices are taking on real responsibility within their roles.

Apprenticeships are a fantastic way to learn on the job, applying the theoretical learning to practical situations.

Introducing, Emilia...

Emilia started her Level 3 Laboratory Technician apprenticeship back in 2018 with CSR. After successfully completing this programme, she has now moved on to the Level 5 Technician Scientist apprenticeship (in Applied Bioscience) with the University of Kent.

Emilia stepped up, always doing extra to make sure we hit the deadline that we had. I think this will give her a lot of confidence in future - you can't buy that, you have to live it and earn it.

- Dr Cathy Oliveira, Production Manager

Emilia is a south east apprenticeship ambassador and part of the network (SEEAN). You can see more information about her apprenticeship story in her case study video below.
