Pathways Training Host Engineering Employers
Pathways Training hosted an Engineering employers meeting at their Newtown campus on 26th April 2017. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the progress of the 2016 -17 PEO Apprentices they currently sponsor.
The PEO learners attend an Apprenticeship programme consisting of 3 days per week in College and two days per week at the workplace.
Pathways Training is confident that the Apprenticeship programme will continue to develop and is pleased to work with our partners Mid Wales Manufacturing Group and Myrick Training to ensure that learners are able to progress to Level 3 without disruption to their learning.
Ken Toop, Senior Process Development Engineer from Dawson Shanahan, Welshpool commented:
“It was good to see the work produced by our apprentices and see how it compared to others in the same year. The review meeting was very informative with some lively discussions that focused on what companies need, the existing Level 2 course content and what will be essential in terms of future direction.
"It was also a good opportunity to meet college/training provider staff and openly discuss level three progression options.”

Chelsea Sears HR/L&D Support Co-ordinator, Nidec Control Techniques commented:]
“I am very happy with the progress that our two apprentices are making, they are not only learning Engineering skills but life skills, Feedback from my colleagues who work with the apprentices is positive and they are doing a great job. Not all modules on the PEO are relevant to the potential job roles that we offer here but it is still of benefit to the apprentices. Looking at the work they have done over the last year, I was very impressed and they have worked hard.”
