Atlas Converting Equipment Ltd. is pleased to confirm that another three engineers recently completed their Advanced Level Apprenticeships in Engineering at its Kempston (Bedford, UK) production facility. The four year apprenticeship scheme has been successfully completed by Rory Astell, Sheldon Crosby and Christopher Bedford.
The apprenticeships are a high quality, nationally recognised engineering qualification and were established through the company's close collaboration with Bedford Training Group Ltd. in Kempston and covered Science, Engineering and Manufacturing Technologies.
The four year apprenticeship is a rigorous training program, demanding a high level of commitment to achieve high standards of academic and practical engineering skills.
Atlas Converting Equipment Ltd has a long history of developing its engineering talent through the use of recognised apprenticeship programmes and at present has a further three engineers undergoing apprenticeship training, something the company believes will continue to strengthen its position as a global provider of high quality, technically advanced products.
"I am a strong believer in the apprenticeship philosophy," explained Alan Johnson, Managing Director of Atlas. "We have a long history of apprenticeships in the company and are committed to continuing this in the coming years. It is important that we continue to invest in the correct skills in order to maintain our leading position in the global market."
