A quick word with an apprentice engineer

This week marks National Apprenticeship Week, an event launched in 2008 to celebrate apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on people, business and the UK economy.

The annual celebration aims to demonstrate that the sky’s the limit for British apprentices - that by gaining the right skills and working hard, young people can rise to the top and enjoy a successful, rewarding career in their chosen field.

Gibbons has welcomed apprentices to learn their trade with us for decades and we’re always delighted to help young people launch their career in engineering. The friendly and professional environment here means we retain many apprentices long after they’ve served their time.

Harry Hughes, 18, joined our motor rewinds workshop in June 2015 having gained his qualifications from Colchester Institute. In October Harry made the local press when he successfully completed his first full electric motor rewind following extensive training from the experienced Gibbons team.
