Qualification: Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Fabrication & Welding
Thomas came to CEATA through the government sponsorship scheme to better his skills and become an accredited welder.
Thomas’s biggest struggle was his confidence in his ability and around other people.
Before securing his place on his course, Thomas lacked the academic achievements that employers looked for, finding it hard to be placed in a company, which knocked him back a great deal.
Starting the course with a small amount of knowledge about welding, Thomas’s attitude towards the course was very positive.
The most demanding part of the course was to demonstrate his latest skills in front of the group for evaluation but over the course of the 6 weeks, Thomas gained a new found confidence, and excelled in the practical training thanks to his motivation.
Now having completed the course, Thomas is looking to take his new knowledge and skill set into the welding and fabrication industry where he enjoys the hands on experience and is looking to further his ability in other aspects of the industry.
Canal Engineering is proud to announce that Thomas is now an employee at the company and has now started his Intermediate Apprenticeship Course at the CEATA Training Academy.
