Apprentice Blog: Rising To The Top Through An Electrical Apprenticeship
As part of National Apprenticeship Week 2016, we have been sharing the stories of adi Group Apprentices – past and present – learning more about how they got involved in engineering as well as their advice to budding engineers looking to take the Apprenticeship route into the industry.
In today’s blog, we speak to adi Electrical’s Dan Collumb who completed an NVQ Level 3 Electrical Apprenticeship and now works within adi Electrical as an Electrical Supervisor across the UK.
What apprenticeship did you do and how long did it take to complete?
NVQ Level 3 Electrical Apprenticeship.
During your apprenticeship what kinds of projects did you support and what type of work did you undertake on a daily basis?
I worked all over the UK for adi’s blue chip clients on a range of different projects at many different sites. This included power, lighting, automation installations, full electrical refurbishments, aerospace projects, installation of rigs and assisting the Automation team with the upgrade of a plant.
What made you decide to do an Apprenticeship?
It seemed like the most sensible and easy way to learn a skilled trade.
What is your role now after completing an Apprenticeship?
I’m now an Electrical Supervisor, running jobs all over the country for Andy Rowberry (adi’s first ever employee!) and Tom Jennings at adi Electrical.
What advice would you give to youngsters looking into engineering apprenticeships?
Look no further than adi… Also, keep your head down and get out of bed of a morning!!
