Case Study - Apprenticeships

APPRENTICE CASE STUDY

Rhys Thomas began his apprenticeship with BOC five years ago following an introduction to the company by a member of the Pathways team based at NPTC Group of Colleges. Since his successful appointment, Rhys has completed Levels 2 and 3 of the apprenticeship in Electrical Engineering and also BTEC Higher National Diploma. He has also recently completed his degree in Electrical Engineering which he studied part-time alongside working for BOC.

At the age of 24, Rhys has recently become Electrical foreman at BOC Margam which is a great achievement and looks set to have a long and successful career ahead of him.

"We have seen the benefits in restarting apprenticeships with people like Rhys, that by working alongside trained persons with many years of experience, you are able to pass on that knowledge and then back it up with academic qualifications." BOC
