A big thank you to the Construction Skills Centre for the use of their excellent facilities at Elephant Park.

Apprentices - Wingate

Apprentices:

We have an established commitment in bringing young people into the Electrical Contracting industry and have a proud record of success through to the very top in our company. In 2016 we recruited seventeen new apprentice electricians across our UK Business.

We would like to congratulate five of our London based apprentices who recently completed their apprenticeships to become qualified electricians, we now look forward to their progression into supervision and possible management roles throughout their career.

Pictured outside our London office are (L-R) Tom Knight, Archie Dady, Darren Borg (London Contracts Director) Jack Murray, Edward Walker and Max Cooper.

We continue the development of our electricians and carry out regular Health, Safety and Skills training. Pictured below is a recent ‘Safe Isolation’ refresher training session carried out within our London region. Over the next two months this will have been rolled out across all our operating regions.

We would like to thank Martindale for the training and expertise offered during these sessions.
