National Apprenticeship Week 2022

As we wrap up National Apprenticeship Week 2022 at PCML - we've been impressed by how engaged and talented our young people are.

Apprenticeships within engineering are vital for ensuring we maintain and develop the skills and leadership we need throughout the PCML Group and to strengthen the wider UK Manufacturing and Engineering Industry.

Engaging and inspiring the next generation is the most rewarding part of our role as mentors.  Becky Rayner - HR Manager, PCML Group 

Over the past few years, the PCML Group have invested in, and continue to implement excellent learning and development opportunities to support our engineers and aspiring leaders on their individual engineering journeys. 

All week we've been catching up with our apprentices and sharing their stories on our Linked In Page 

Apprentice in Focus

Why did you choose engineering?
Engineering is something I have always had a curiosity for, I feel as though I am making a small contribution towards the solution of real-world problems, making a positive impact on people's lives.

What do you like about being an apprentice and why choose this route?
I like the on the job experience that is associated with an apprenticeship whilst also gaining new knowledge and qualifications from College that can be transferred over to the workplace. This is the reason I chose an apprenticeship as there are always opportunities to learn new things! 

What has been the most interesting topic for you since starting in September?
Since starting my apprenticeship in September, the most interesting topic I have encountered so far is the use of Computer Aided Manufacturing software in the manufacturing environment and simultaneous five axis machining.  

What do you like doing in your spare time?
During my spare time, I like to research different manufacturing techniques and anything new I have encountered during the working week, I believe even outside of the workplace I can contribute towards my learning and become a more competent and knowledgeable apprentice
