Pressure Part Engineering (PP Eng) is one of the latest businesses to team up with The Engineering College in Birkenhead to launch its apprenticeship programme.
Pressure Part Engineering, based in the North West of England, is a full fabrication, delivery and installation business which has over 80 years experience in the Engineering Construction Industry.
The company has enrolled Jake as their first ever apprentice, after Jake originally joined the business from school.
Craig Gerrard, Managing Director of PP Eng, said: “Our management team liked Jake’s work ethic and attitude, sparking a discussion with Jake on how he could progress into a skilled trade.
“We took the decision to engage with The Engineering College and develop an apprenticeship programme which is tailored for the individual and their goals. It provides an opportunity to look at their skills and see how we can support them in the future.
PP Eng has lots of working opportunities across the UK, offshore in the North Sea and the African Regions, which will enable the business to develop an offshore training programme as well as onshore works.
Craig added: “As Jake continues to grow and develop with us, it is our ambition to add an additional apprentice to our team in 12 months time.
“We hope that going forwards we can work in partnership with The Engineering College to further develop the opportunities we can offer to suitable apprentices.”
Terry Weston, Chief Executive of The Engineering College, said: “We are delighted to have formed a new partnership with PP Eng.
“It is great to see more companies in our local area offering employment opportunities to young people. By working with us, we hope that PP Eng can expand on their apprenticeship programme and grow their business as a whole.
“We look forward to developing a closer relationship with PP Eng and their team going forward – further developing their apprenticeship programme which is bespoke to their business needs.”
