ACEDA provide valuable opportunities for two new skilled Apprentices
Due to growth across all areas of the business, ACEDA have invested in employee development by giving two individuals an invaluable opportunity to develop their profession and achieve an industry recognised qualification.
Lewis Cook (aged 20) and Connor Serginson (aged 22) commenced there employment at the end of the summer and are enrolled on a three year, Level 3 Fire, Emergency and Security Systems Technician course, through Access Training in Gateshead.
During their three year apprenticeship, Lewis and Connor will be developing both their practical and professional skill sets. Key areas of their learning and development will include general subjects from client communication and Health & Safety to theoretical and practical knowledge of Fire, Intruder and Security Systems. Lewis and Connor will be working onsite alongside ACEDA’s current skilled Engineers for the majority of the time but will be required to attend college throughout the duration of their apprenticeship.
Lewis Cook said, “ACEDA have given me the opportunity to develop my professional and practical knowledge, giving me the essential skills and experience to develop a career within the industry. I am working alongside highly skilled Engineers who are helping me develop in all areas of my profession.”
ACEDA recognise the importance of investing in young people to develop their skills and knowledge through apprenticeships. Connor and Lewis have already showed a great deal of commitment and enthusiasm for the role and are thriving both onsite and at college. Paul Warnes, Commercial Director at ACEDA said, “We have worked closely with the Education provider to develop an apprenticeship that will form a strong platform for Lewis and Connor to develop their careers. Having first hand site knowledge and experience will provide the apprentices with the skills to work within different environments on a range of projects. As a business we aim to continuously invest in young people, giving them invaluable opportunities within the industry.”
