Precision Colour Printing is celebrating success after two of their apprentices achieved a 3 year BTEC in Mechanical Maintenance and Year 3 Intermediate Apprenticeship in Machine Printing.
Alex Pinner and Oliver Millington were part of an annual awards ceremony where the company celebrated the achievements of its work based learning programmes.
Alex Pinner has gone on to secure permanent employment as a number 1 printer following the completion of his apprenticeship in Machine Printing and Oliver Millington is now employed as a Mechanical Engineer.
Samantha James, Head of HR said, ‘I am extremely proud to be the ambassador for our work based learning initiatives at PCP. The apprenticeship scheme has meant that we can attract and develop aspiring young people from our local community and give them the work based learning and formal accreditation necessary to enjoy a stable and rewarding career.
Apprentices are essential to succession planning and organically nurturing a trained and competent workforce of tomorrow makes complete sense given the specialist skills we require.
We have just launched our 2016 apprentice recruitment campaign where we invited young people from the local area to come and meet with us, view our environment and learn more about the opportunities here. The launch was a tremendous success and is something we will definitely take forward as an annual event.’
