‘’Apprentices have helped North Sea Winches enormously. Our apprentices have all quickly become key members of our production team whilst their continuous hard work, dedication and enthusiasm has allowed us to develop new manufacturing processes, as well as increase the productivity of existing. Having our fantastic apprentices has also allowed us to diversify into other areas of manufacture such as developing, designing and manufacturing all of our electrical controls in-house, and an apprentice is a pivotal part of that process. Working with Derwent Training has been key to the success we have had with our apprentices as they provide the fundamental underpinning knowledge and support to allow them to become the engineers of the future.’’

‘’James Fisher Nuclear realised that skilled staff in the Ryedale area are of a premium and much sought after, we therefore made the decision to take on apprentices and nurture the next generation of skilled operatives ourselves. This also has benefits as the apprentices understand our requirements and standards from the outset. With the help of Derwent Training we are now seeing the benefits of this process. We have two apprentices who have been through their Apprenticeship and are now working alongside our skilled staff, whilst also helping and mentoring our current apprentices. The time spent with the apprentices is now starting to show reward and they will become an integral part of James Fisher’s future prosperity.’’
