Jacobs’ Apprentice Finalist in UK Industrial Cadets Awards


Jacobs Apprentice Chloe Pascoe was recently named one of four proud Industrial Cadet finalists in the Inaugural U.K. Industrial Cadets Awards. Having taken part in Jacobs’ Workplace Experience program in 2015, Pascoe is now completing her Technical Certificate for her Project Controls apprenticeship with the company and is enjoying the role of Work Experience Coordinator in Jacobs’ Westlakes office, West Cumbria.

The U.K. Industrial Cadets Awards celebrate and showcase achievements of cadets, employers and schools/colleges that have been a part of the accreditation to date. 

Pascoe first met the Jacobs team when she won a work experience placement through the local Dream Placement program in 2015. Over the week-long program with Jacobs, Pascoe was able to gain an insight into each department from mechanical and process engineering, through to project controls.

Pascoe explains, “The placement gave me a great understanding for what Jacobs does on a day-to-day basis, and different disciplines involved in delivering a project. 

“After my first year of Sixth Form with my AS levels, I decided to apply for the Project Controls apprenticeship with Jacobs. I am now completing my Technical Certificate and NVQ Level 3 in Project Controls. Jacobs offers many different apprenticeships; so the Industrial Cadets’ accredited work experience week really helps students assess the career path they would like to take. 

“On completion of my NVQ Level 3, I’m keen to achieve a Foundation Degree in Project Controls, which will hopefully lead to my Masters. During my time here I have also taken on the role of the Work Experience Coordinator. Having experienced the placement myself, I felt this was a great role to enable me to help the students and develop the activity program.”

Jacobs Vice President Aerospace & Technology Peter Lutwyche adds, “Many congratulations to Chloe, we’re very proud of her terrific achievement and the effort she has invested back into the program to keep raising awareness of engineering, construction and related roles. Our local apprentices and graduates are making great strides in helping to encourage students to consider and pursue rewarding careers in local industry.”
