NCL delivers apprenticeship training to around 200 businesses in and around Lanarkshire - covering a range of occupations including office administration, computing, dental nursing, engineering and automotive repair and maintenance.
Local and national employers can reap a number of benefits of taking on an apprentice, and Glasgow-based Welding Engineers Ltd is one of many who have seen first-hand the the positive impact an apprentice can have on business.
With four NCL apprentices having already progressed through the apprenticeship programme at the company, which specialises in the manufacture, installation, repair and maintenance of all types of industry doors, Kevin McConville, Responsible Welding Coordinator/Fabrication Manager comments on how taking on apprentices has worked for his organisation:
“We have worked with NCL for over five years, training and developing four apprentices in that time who have been a fantastic asset to our organisation.
“Apprenticeships are extremely beneficial as they build the next generation of tradespeople. It also gives the apprentice the chance to learn skills for the job, as well as skills for their future.
“Every organisation could benefit from an apprentice as with the support from the College, apprentices can be the next generation of highly skilled employees.
“Having an apprentice has worked for Welding Engineers Ltd.”
