October is Apprentice month here at A Lench HQ. Throughout the month we will be documenting through our social media what our level 1, 2 & 3 apprentices do on a daily basis, both in and out of college. We will be popping into PM Training and Newcastle College to get an insight into how each of the educational establishments get our apprentices ready for real life scenarios and how the develop them into full time employment.
Opening up is some of the latest additions to A Lench who have just commenced in level 1 courses at PM Training and are currently working on multiple sites across the North West and Midlands.
First up are Connor Small & Steve Flowers who are currently working on our McCarthy & Stone Audlem development. A big thank you to McCarthy & Stone for supporting our apprentice scheme allowing the lads hone their skills on site. The lads are pictured here on site with their foreman Gavin Small (a long-standing member of the A Lench team working 20+ years with the company) and with Neil Mitchell (Site Manager from the Audlem Site).
Also, a big thank you again to PM training for allowing us to capture the lads on block release at college where they attend one week a month. Pictured is Peter, a brick work lecturer who teaches both practical in the workshop and theory in the classroom, guiding them through their two-year experience to gain the qualifications needed to become a fully-fledged tradesman.
