Manmeet first came to High Precision Wales on work-experience, he is now an award winning apprentice fufilling his career goals in the Engineering Sector.
Manmeet Singh, 19 from Tylorstown in Pontypridd, is currently studying his NVQ level 3 in Engineering Manufacturing. He said:
“I came to High Precision Wales on work experience and just loved that I was doing so much of the cool stuff.It is challenging but I’m enjoying learning new things every day and being given the responsibility to just have a go.”
Many apprentices go on to be offered full time positions within the company they have worked for as an apprentice, and Manmeet’s goals reflect this. He continued:
“My plan is to finish my apprenticeship and to stay with the company and help achieve their business goals.”
A valued addition
Former apprentice himself, managing director Nicky Blake said that there was an increasing requirement for qualified engineers in the specialist area in which they work.
Nicky, 50, from Cardiff said:
We currently employ two apprentices and a former apprentice who is fully qualified and now runs his own section. We’re such a niche employer that you don’t find people out there with these specialist skills, so we decided to employ young people who are eager to learn and teach them ourselves. By doing it this way we can teach them specific skills, it’s up to us to teach the younger generation and future proof our trade.
