National Apprenticeship Week 2021
It’s National Apprenticeship Awareness Week and we are committed to further developing the skills of our current and past apprentices, who want to embark on a career in the manufacturing industry.
Having apprentices allow us to build our future workforce and talent. Each individual experiences responsibility from day one, whilst studying towards a nationally recognised qualification.
Apprenticeships give individuals the chance to gain skills and knowledge that our business requires. Not only that but they learn the values of our business and in return can make huge impact.
Kyle started with us in September 2020 as an Apprentice Business Administrator. In Kyles short time at Tek Troniks he has jumped head first into becoming first port of call for customer support. This is no mean feat as it takes time and dedication to become confident with all of Tek Troniks products.
As well as focusing on support, Kyle is involved in administration duties such as processes customer orders, creating relevant documents/certificates and much more.
“An apprenticeship allows you to get practical experience while learning. I have the ability to get a grasp on the working world with an added bonus of earning while learning.”
“I would recommend an apprenticeship to others as it allows you to gain skills in a real work environment. It is a great learning curve and I’m excited for what the future holds.”
Previous Apprentice (and current employee)
Daniel started at Tek Troniks as an apprentice back in 2014. He began working in our warehouse as an Apprentice Assembler Technician and now splits his time between the warehouse and the office, as Production Support.
” As an apprentice my role varied from assembling electronic products, wiring cable looms, programming PCBs, soldering and starting to learn how to run the SMT machine.”
“Now I am in charge of the day to day running of the workshop/warehouse, production planning, purchasing and also offering technical help over the phone, when required.”
“I would recommend an apprenticeship to others because the qualifications you attain are relevant for the line of work you desire to go into. I believe that getting ‘on the job experience’ allows your career to progress at a much faster rate.”
