Banham Academy – Apprenticeship Graduate
We would like to introduce our newest maintenance engineer, Rhys, 20 years old. Rhys was an apprentice through the Banham Academy, he now offers support to new apprentices. Rhys found out about the apprenticeship scheme through a family friend who also works at Banham Security.
We asked Rhys why he chose to go through the apprenticeship scheme – “I felt at the time it would be more useful than going to university… I took an Electrical and Electronic course at college before I started the apprenticeship and felt my knowledge and skills would develop further in the security industry.”
Rhys found the transition from apprentice to engineer useful and gave him a huge confidence boost, “…I now have the responsibility of setting a good example for the new apprentices and doing the jobs I am given each day to the best of my ability.”
What’s next for Rhys? “I hope to gather enough knowledge to soon move on to a bigger role within Banham. I would recommend anyone who can do an apprenticeship to do it and give it 100%”
“Rhys has proven to be a great maintenance engineer and is an asset to the team” – Banham Maintenance Manager
We caught Rhys for a picture before he left for his first call out
