In the past year two full time employees of Europlaz have completed an apprenticeship in Performing Manufacturing Operations.
Luke Gibson has worked at Europlaz for seven years and decided to take on the apprenticeship to expand his knowledge and learn new skills. Since finishing the course he has taken an interest in Injection Mould Setting and is currently completing an in house training programme along side our more experienced setters.
Steven Percival has worked at Europlaz for two years, he started in production before quickly being transfered to the tool room. Today he is an assistant tool technician and is a valued member of the team.
Through the apprenticship Steven discovered he has exceptional maths skills and could be a skilled engineer. This April Steven is going on to start his level two Diploma in Engineering at Chelmsford College. It is a day release course and will really test and expand the knowledge and skills needed in the tool room at Europlaz.
Both apprentices worked very hard during their course and Europlaz is extremely proud to have them on the team and to watch them both grow and develop in confidence as well as in practical knowledge.
We look forward to putting more young people through apprenticeship courses and wish Steven and Luke every success.
