Lorna Sowerbutts

Degree apprentice Lorna Sowerbutts, 20, from Clitheroe, is enjoying the best of both worlds, working as a Nuclear Technician at Sellafield Ltd, alongside studying for an HND in Construction at the University Centre Wigan & Leigh College.

Lorna’s decision to become a degree apprentice means she can earn a salary and study at a higher level, without the burden of debt in the form of a student loan.

“I wasn’t keen on going to university full time but wanted to get into higher education,” she said. “Taking a degree apprenticeship suits me because I can work and learn at an advanced level.”
