Tiegan and her cake

Twenty-year-old female apprentice Tiegan Jewell has won a coveted place as a crew member on a tall ship this Summer.

Tiegan is one of A&P Falmouth’s apprentice cohort and secured her place on a one-week leg of the Merseyside Adventure Sailing Trust (MAST) Apprentice Ship Cup (ASC) 2019 after baking and decorating a chocolate tall ship-shaped cake, on whose sails she had written why she should represent Falmouth.

She said: “I’m thrilled to have been selected to represent Falmouth and to fly the flag for A&P. I’ve only ever walked onto a ship when it’s docked in Falmouth so this will be a completely new experience for me. I’m nervous and excited and eager to push myself out of my comfort zone.”

Tiegan joined A&P in April 2018 as a finance apprentice after studying for a business diploma at Cornwall College. She is now studying to be an accounting technician and will start her Level Four module in September.

She said: “I’m really enjoying my time as an apprentice at A&P Falmouth. I’m learning a lot. A&P is a great company to work for and I’m part of a really great team. They have supported me all along the way.”
