Innovative southern fabricator Whiteline recently marked an important event in the company’s continuing expansion. The Whiteline team celebrated the successful qualification of their first 3 manufacturing apprentices with a certificate presentation by the local Eastbourne MP, Stephen Lloyd, who had been a supporter of this initiative from its inception.
Over the previous year the 3 candidates had developed their skills and were ultimately assessed across 14 NVQ modules at level 2. The course was specifically tailored to glass related operations and fabrication in an effective production facility, covering every facet of quality manufacturing practice. The result for the apprentices is a solid first step in their careers whilst Whiteline benefits from having a qualified and skilled workforce, set to support their customers as they work together to build future business success.
MP Lloyd summed up his thoughts on the big day. “It was a real pleasure to revisit Whiteline to celebrate the success of their Apprentice Scheme. Three young people who I met this time last year as apprentices now have a full time job with the company. This scheme at Whiteline works for both apprentices and the business, a great local company going from strength to strength and I take my hat off to them and their apprentices.”
