We have recently recruited five new apprentices that will add to our successful team of fully qualified, experienced welders and engineers and join our four existing second year apprentices. Since the company was established over 35 years ago, this has been our largest intake of apprentices at one time.
A quality apprenticeship programme will be delivered by QA Weld Tech to the recent appointments and will consist of structured learning, organised around professional tasks and interspersed with appropriate, relevant education. The apprentices will be trained within multiple disciplines and receive constant mentoring, support and guidance from current employees as they take their first steps towards a career in the welding and engineering industry.
We would like to welcome to the team:
- Kieran Reynard & Will Helm – Apprentice Welders
- Jordan Walton – Apprentice CNC Machinist
- Harrison Olive – Apprentice in Supply Chain Management
- Lewis Hunter – Apprentice Quality Technician
Hiring apprentices helps us to enhance our highly qualified workforce and overcome the challenges faced within the industry of an ageing workforce, through engaging with young people we can bridge the skills gap and continue to move forward, focusing on key areas as we look to expand further into the nuclear and rail markets. We feel privileged that we can train the next generation and watch them continue to develop their skills and knowledge whilst growing through the business like previous apprentices that have stayed with the company for many years.
