ACE Winches donates tools for craft apprentices to ITCA Training

ACE WinchesBanff-shire-based ACE Winches, the deck-machinery specialist, has donated a range of hydraulic pumps to ITCA Training.

These will be used to support young people working in the oil and gas sector by encouraging them to develop their technical skills

Both organisations have a strong history of working together and ACE Winches continues to support ITCA Training in its provision of vocational and academic training, and its modern apprenticeship programme. 

June Jones, Managing Director, ITCA Training, said: “The training experience is boosted when apprentices can work with the same or similar equipment as found in their daily workplace”

“It is vital we have training which is relevant and keeps up to date with modern technology and we appreciate the ongoing support and loyalty we receive from ACE Winches.

Lisa McPherson, HR Director, ACE Winches recently welcomed June Jones, and Graeme Johnston, Workshop Engineering Assessor at ITCA to ACE Winches’ workshops in Turriff. The visit provided an opportunity for June Jones and Graeme Johnston to tour the facilities and spend some time with a few members of the ACE Winches apprenticeship scheme.
