Connor Paskell

Apprentice Connor Paskell’s career has taken off since joining British Airways Avionic Engineering (BAAE) in Llantrisant.

Connor, 21, who lives in Llantrisant, was determined to pursue a career in engineering, enrolling on a full-time engineering course at Coleg y Cymoedd whilst continuing to work part-time at a nursery.

His commitment paid off, completing a BTEC Enhanced Engineering qualification with a distinction and winning the college’s Engineering Apprentice of the Year Award.

Connor joined BAAE in 2018 and is due to complete his apprenticeship as an avionic engineer this August, hoping to progress to a HNC.

Martine Roles, human resources manager for BAAE in Llantrisant, said:

“Connor has become an integral part of the business throughout his apprenticeship and the sought-after person for project work. He consistently strives for perfection and achieves it.”
