A group of learners from an Aberdeen-based apprenticeship-
ITCA Training, which is based at Kirkhill Industrial Estate, Dyce, created the Skills for Engineers course (S4E) to provide in-depth training for youngsters in a diverse engineering sector.
The specialist training company, currently has five learners who need to carry out a four-week work placements within organisations in order to complete their training.
The course, which lasts for 20 weeks, is designed to cover a mixture of classroom based studies and practical work covering a wide range of aspects of engineering including hand fitting and assembly skills, servicing skills, pipe fitting work suitable for use in plumbing or gas fitting work, basic hydraulics and pneumatics and health and safety training, with an unit on MIG-welding.
June Jones, Managing Director of ITCA, said: “Following their 16 weeks of training at ITCA, the group of learners are already equipped with a range of valuable practical and health and safety skills that they can utilise in the workplace immediately.
“There is no cost for the placements – all we require is the four weeks opportunity in order to help the learners complete their course.”
