Last year, as a part of an organic growth strategy, CET Calibration took on a young apprentice. Chris Locke, Operations Director, explains why the apprentice scheme is such a good fit: “there has been a gradual de-skilling of the workforce in recent years. For a specialist engineering firm like CET Calibration, it makes sense to take on an apprentice and teach them the tricks of the trade from an early age”.
18-year-old Louis Chadwick comes from a family of engineers, both his grandfather and uncle worked in the industry before him. He heard about the vacancy through his local college and has been working in the lab four days a week for the past 9 months. In addition, he attends college every Tuesday as he works towards his formal Electrical Engineering qualification.
Louis recently completed Level 2 of his apprenticeship, which features a lot of practical work. Level 3 is a slightly lengthier process and includes a greater degree of written and procedural work.
Chris Locke continues “Louis is both enthusiastic and hard-working. His positive attitude has served him well and he has become a valuable member of the CET Calibration team. The apprenticeship program has been a very positive experience for us and looks set to become a permanent part of our growth and development strategy in years to come”.
