When dreams come true...
A profoundly deaf student at Bondholder Derby College Group (DCG) who appeared on the BBC’s The One Show in 2018 talking about his dream to work at fellow Bondholder Rolls-Royce, has now been accepted onto its full apprenticeship scheme starting in September 2020.
Reuben Litherland said: “Everyone is very proud of me. I told all of my family I had got an apprenticeship here. It’s been always my dream from when I was young to go straight from school to an apprenticeship.”
Paul Broadhead, Head of Community Investment & Education Outreach at Rolls-Royce, first reached out to Reuben on hearing his comments TV and invited him on a special visit to Rolls-Royce, said: “This is fabulous news and just goes to show that dreams do come true and STEM outreach does help inspire and change lives!”
