Leyton Health Electrical

Heath Electrical Services had already been sourcing apprentices through MK College, but recently, they decided to cement a closer partnership to help with their challenges in recruiting.

Leyton Francis, Purchasing Manager for Heath Electrical Services, said: “We’ve been on the hunt for good engineers on the gas side and electrical side, so it’s heartwarming to see the effort that’s going in to produce a new generation of workers.”

Leyton adds that working with the College has been really straightforward. He said, “It’s seamless, to be honest. On every scale, it just flows very well. It hasn’t taken any of my time – a phone call and something is sorted. It’s time saving and communication has always been great. The apprentices we have taken from MK College have been the best ones, and they’re the ones that have lasted. Whatever they’re doing, it’s working.”

When asked what advice he’d give to other businesses working with MK College, he said, “If they want the best apprentices, I’d go to them, as they have the highest quality training. I wish they were there 10 to 15 years ago. We’d have a fleet of workers trained to this standard, and if that could be mirrored across the country, our infrastructure would be so much better.”
