Emmegi (UK) has announced that the company’s two young apprentices Dan and Will successfully completed their four-year training programmes to become NVQ qualified Mechanical and Electrical Engineers.
They are both now carrying out machine servicing and repairs independently and are already out visiting customers across the UK.
Managing director Ian Latimer said: “Dan and Will are great apprenticeship success stories. They’ve done well at college and in the practical training they’ve received here. They particularly benefited from the fact that we gave our experienced engineers time and space to train them on jobs where they could learn and practice their skills.
“The whole team here has been invested in their progress and they’ve been immersed in our positive work culture, so they have also learnt all those other important life skills such as time management and customer communication.
“One of the biggest strengths of Emmegi (UK) is the stability and vast experience of our team, but we do recognise that we need to invest in bringing on new talent as well. Dan and Will have proven that, done properly and with the right level of commitment on both sides, apprenticeships are a good way to do that.”
