They are embarking on a four-year Modern Apprentice course at Forth Valley College to prepare them for a future in machinery and instrumentation engineering.

Cammy (17) from Dunfermline will study to become a machinery technician, while Nathan, who is also 17 and lives in Edinburgh, will be an instrumentation technician.

The first year of their apprenticeship will be full-time at college, with the second and third years doing day release at college while working at FEP and their final year full-time on the plant being mentored by experienced employees.

Jeroen Koutstaal, maintenance manager, said: “We again had great interest in our apprenticeships at FEP, and received around 150 applications this year. It’s good to see that FEP is seen as an attractive place to learn and work.

"Our places are particularly valued as we only recruit for identified future needs.”
