It has long been company policy here at VRS to support the future of mechanical engineering through apprenticeships, and we are happy to welcome into the company Joe, who started with us on 18th September 2017. He comes to us via PETA Training and Consultancy Services, with whom we have had a long and successful association over many years. Joe joined us at level 3 of his “Engineering Mechanical Manufacture” apprenticeship, and his weekly routine is four days at VRS and one day with PETA.
As we see one young lad start his training, we have another, Byron, nearing the end of his, and with his PETA day release training successfully completed, we expect him to become fully qualified following a few more tests, by August 2018.
We also continue to support young people over the years who have an interest in engineering by allowing them to gain an insight into precision engineering through work experience.
