Testimonials

A selection of quotes from Scholars, Apprentices, Freemen and Liverymen.

I wanted to be part of SIM for a number of reasons: I wanted to support the good work carried out by the Company in promoting STEM (I had been introduced to the company through its support of ‘young engineers’) but I l also like the traditions and the networking.
During the summer just gone I took an internship with Mechatronic Solutions in Birmingham. Through my Apprentice Master and a member of the Worshipful Company, Chris Gibson, I was given this special opportunity, for which I am extremely grateful. I found my internship very interesting and rewarding and I felt it developed me positively as an engineer.

I strongly support the ethos of the Company and the work they do to encourage instrument makers of the future, particularly through their mentoring programme, awards and support of schemes like the Arkwright scholarships. We all remember the person or scheme that played a pivotal role in us choosing instrument making, in one of its many forms, as a career path. Paying this forward to the next generation is an obligation we should embrace joyfully and wholeheartedly.
