Learner Profile: Joseph
Joseph began his Toolmaker Apprenticeship with Precision Polymer Engineering after enjoying Training 2000’s Engineering Aspiring Club during the summer following school and decided that an Apprenticeship would be the best way for him to gain qualifications and study higher education.
During his time in the classroom, Joe learnt about engineering mathematics, lean manufacturing methods and engineering projects before Precision Polymer Engineering funded him to complete his Higher National Certificate and Higher National Diploma. Joe says that these qualifications have “helped me in the workplace as it has built my engineering knowledge to become a good engineer and skills to progress in my company”.
Since completing his Apprenticeship in July 2022, Joe has been studying for his Higher National Diploma with a view of progressing on to Degree Level.
In the future, Joe is considering becoming Engineering Technician registered with the possibility of becoming a Chartered Engineer.
"Training 2000 has been excellent and has a friendly environment with teachers who are willing to help you become the best tradesman you can be. The further education team are excellent and head and shoulders above other colleges and are where I would recommend you get your further qualifications after your Apprenticeships."— Joseph, Toolmaker at Precision Polymer Engineering
Joe is an advocate of Apprenticeships saying “I feel as though apprenticeships are the best way to get your degree whilst also being paid and building your experience in a workplace.”
