Born to Engineer - Lewis Wilde

One chance conversation led Lewis to a seriously exciting apprenticeship in engineering. Studying for A-levels isn’t everyone’s cup of tea and for Lewis Wilde, taking on an apprenticeship instead was “definitely the best decision” he ever made.

Thanks to a chance meeting with the owner of Island RIBs, an Isle of Wight marine engineering company, and with the support of the Lloyd’s Register Foundation and the Worshipful Company of Shipwrights, he’s now in a full-time boatbuilding apprenticeship.
