Apprenticeship Awards

We would like to commend the fantastic achievements of the apprentices and the work of Paul Pritchard and his team over at The Scottish Power Training Centre, Hoylake.

As an approved Platinum Provider by the industry, they implement the highest quality content and delivery of qualifications for apprentices within the Power Industry.

Since this week is both the National and Scottish Apprenticeship Week, Scottish Power have been showcasing and celebrating apprenticeships and the benefits they have on businesses, individuals and the economy nationwide.

Scottish Power is a keen supporter of National Apprenticeship Week, Muir McDonald, Head of Resourcing at Scottish Power says “Hiring apprentices helps businesses to grow their own talent by developing a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce.”

As part of their Trailblazer Apprenticeship Programme the apprentices spend a full 6 months with the Total People staff David Hellier and Steve Robinson. The team take the apprentices from a starting point of little competency and knowledge of the industry to a stage where they are confident in passing them over to the Scottish Power staff to continue their apprenticeship. As part of the programme an awards event is held to recognise their achievement at the end of these blocks. We are excited to highlight three apprentices who won at the end of their 6-month block with Total People. The tutors have done an exceptional job at upskilling the proficiency and technical level of the apprentices.  Rob Atherton, Iwan Jones and Imogen Reynolds were awarded the following:

Rob Atherton (Award Demonstrating Scottish Power Values) ‘I get plenty of technical training, achieve qualifications that lead to a great job’

Iwan Jones (Award Apprentice Inspiring Others)I seem to be learning something new every day’

Imogen Reynolds (Most Consistent Performer) 

Andy Churchman, District General Manager, North Wales “Following a rigorous recruitment process we now have a group of high calibre apprentices. They will all receive quality training over the duration of their apprenticeship which will set up their future careers in the company. Apprentices bring a can-do approach to work, flexibility, work really hard whilst engaging in activity throughout the local community. These attitudes and behaviours will support our commitment meeting regulatory goals”

A huge congratulations to Rob, Iwan and Imogen and all the exemplary work carried out by the tutors David Hellier and Steve Robinson.
