Leaving Care and into an Apprenticeship

Posted: 30/08/18 by Goodwill Solutions CIC

Goodwill Solutions Learning Academy CIC was asked by the Leaving Care Team (part of Northamptonshire Children First) to run its Skills 4 Work course for a number of young people who were in care and about to leave because of their age. One of the learners, Stuart, had already completed a course in electrical installation and had good GCSE grades so when we were asked by Automatic Systems Ltd. to help with a Level 3 Electrical Installation and Maintenance Engineer apprenticeship vacancy for them, Stuart was an obvious candidate. His CV was put forward and he was interviewed by John Baker, Country Manager at Automatic Systems.

Stuart was successful and accepted the job offer. NITAL, based in Kettering, were asked to take on the training provider role. Stuart started on 2 July and was immediately out with one of the existing engineers, helping with the installation and maintenance of automatic entry systems such as car park barriers and digitally operated entry systems.

Stuart has made a successful start to his apprenticeship and has started his off-the-job training at NITAL’s premises in Kettering as well.

We would like to thank John Baker and Automatic Systems Ltd. for taking on an apprentice and wish Stuart all the very best for his apprenticeship and for a very promising future career.
