On Tuesday 12th March representatives from RPS Boucher Road visited Ballymena Academy to meet Year 13 and 14 pupils who wanted to learn more about the WORK+ Engineering Apprenticeship scheme.
There was also time for the pupils to use the Virtual Reality equipment that RPS use to carry out much of their work.
Mr Heaney also took a keen interest in this hi-tech equipment and sat in on the presentation!
The closing date for the WORK+ scheme for this year is Tuesday 19th March 2019.
