Having worked with MK College for over two years, James Zammett, Operations Manager at CTE Advanced Technologies, has experienced first-hand the benefits that hiring an apprentice can have on a business. CTE have embraced the partnership with the College by taking on two engineering apprentices so far.

Continual College Support

James has been impressed by the support the College offers in recruiting an apprentice and in supporting both the employer and the apprentice during their training.

He said, “The process of signing up an apprentice can be daunting to the uninitiated; however, the team at the College are helpful at every stage. A tutor from the college visits the workplace regularly and there’s always someone available to answer our questions.”

He added, “Both of our apprentices have exceeded our expectations. Their success is a testament to the hard work of the apprentices themselves, but also to the college.

CTE have also taken part in a number of other employer opportunities, such as guest speaking and taking students on a work experience placement.

James said, “We have visited the College to speak to a group of students in order to introduce them to CTE and the world of work within engineering. Working with MK College has been a very positive experience. It is a partnership.

“I’d recommend working with MK College to any employers interested in getting help to recruit and train engineers in their business.”
