Interserve and JTL to deliver bespoke traineeship programme

07 August 2015     JTL

JTL are working alongside leading employer Interserve to design and deliver a bespoke traineeship programme. Both organisations are committed to inspiring future professionals, and in working with JTL, Interserve’s Engineering Services team are aiming to lead the way in their industry.

Traineeships are one of a number of services that JTL offer alongside apprenticeships. They are a government initiative designed to get young people work-ready, and give them everything they need to then move onto a full apprenticeship.

The bespoke traineeship programme developed between Interserve and JTL will equip young people with the basic skills required to obtain or job or apprenticeship within the mechanical and electrical industry.

The 12-week course includes health and safety training, use of basic tools, Maths and English, employability skills and a four-week site-based placement with the engineering services division.

In the last 12 months alone, Interserve’s Engineering Services team has supported 26 technical and skilled operative apprenticeships and four trainee placements. Jonathan Evans, who started with Interserve on a traineeship and is now a full-time apprentice, was named JTL Trainee of the Year at our National Awards ceremony in London in February.

The team has pledged to provide a further 10 traineeship placements this year, and at the end of the programme, some will be offered full-time apprenticeship positions.

Mike Knowles, Managing Director of Interserve’s Engineering Services division, said of the news: “Having trained as an electrical apprentice in 1977, I am an enthusiastic supporter of apprenticeships and career development, and am committed to ensuring a lasting legacy on every project.

”At Engineering Services, we take pride in building partnerships and focussing our activities to provide enhanced skills and opportunities, with a particular focus on inspiring tomorrow’s engineers.”
