Apprenticeship Week - May 2014

 

ITCA Training learners graduate with flying colours

 

 

Scottish Apprenticeship Week celebrates the benefits apprenticeships bring to individuals, businesses and communities across the country, as well

as their valuable contribution to the Scottish economy.

 

Aberdeen apprenticeship training company, ITCA Training, highlighted the importance of apprenticeships this week when MSP Mark McDonald visited

its headquarters in Dyce to meet students and staff following the company’s graduation ceremony recently.

 

In May 2014, 84 learners graduated from ITCA which is one of the largest engineering apprenticeship-training firms in Scotland. Youngsters, who

carried out their apprenticeships at local firms in the area, passed SVQ Levels 3 and 4 and Modern Apprenticeship courses in a range of disciplines

including engineering, fabrication welding, business and administration and logistics.

 

 

Youngster Kevin Wilson, 21, who graduated with a Modern Apprenticeship in fabrication welding, had even more reason to celebrate when he was

presented with the 2014 Learner of the Year Accolade in recognition of his hard work and dedication.

 

After leaving school, Kevin made the decision to join Aberdeen apprenticeship training company, ITCA Training, and began his career through the

Get Ready for Work programme.

 

The training firm secured Mr Wilson a work placement with Dyce-based company Caledonian Petroleum Services (CPS) after he displayed a strong

interest in welding.  After successfully completing the initial programme at ITCA, he secured a full-time position with the firm.

 

CPS utilises the programme to give young people an opportunity to kick-start a career within the oil and gas, welding and fabrication industry.

 

In October 2013, Mr Wilson reached the finals of Skills Development Scotland Modern Apprenticeship Awards, displaying his drive, determination and

resilience to overcome dyslexia to succeed in his discipline.

 

 

June Jones, ITCA managing director, said: “ITCA is proud of the success of all its graduates but as in every learning environment there are always

those who demonstrate exceptional skills and talent. Kevin has shown true dedication, motivation, enthusiasm and commitment throughout his

apprenticeship and is a role model for learners. We wish all our graduates all the best in their future careers.”

Excellence. As part of the apprenticeship, participants are required to complete an SVQ Level 3 qualification and have all five core skills at Scottish

Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) Level Five.

 

Youngsters from the youth academy attended ITCA Training’s headquarters at the Kirkhill Industrial Estate, in Dyce, to reach their goal of core skills in

Numeracy, Information Communication and Technology (ICT), Problem Solving and Communication. The Working with Others core skills is achieved

through their team work on the pitch.

 

ITCA Training managing director, June Jones, said: “Although we are recognised for our apprenticeships in engineering, the training centre has an

experienced team of assessors on-hand to deliver business focused courses and non-traditional apprenticeships.

 

“We have had a long association with AFC in respect of core skills delivery. Each learner successfully completed the course, and we wish them luck

in their future career with the club.”

 

Allan McKimmie, AFC’s Education and Welfare Officer, said: “We have been working with ITCA for five years now and they have consistently provided

the necessary core skills required to support the achievement of the award which is a vital aspect of their development as both individuals and

footballers.”

with a chance of employment in a highly competitive environment."

 

Managing Director of ITCA, June Jones, said: "The new course is built around our successful previous transition courses which will offer the learners

a practical route to their apprenticeship and from there hopefully they will secure employment. The course involves a lot of practical experience working

with the machinery, which helps provide the learners with real life on the job experience. It is vital that companies are investing in the future of their

business through apprenticeships."

ITCA Training based in the city's York Street has recently seen another learner complete the eight-week hand skills training course as part of a client's

graduate scheme.

 

The training centre, which is one of Scotland's largest engineering apprenticeship-training firms was approached by ACE Winches to deliver a

bespoke course in order to offer graduates practical, hands on experience in welding, fitting and assembly, electrical, pneumatics, hydraulics and

health and safety.

The graduates are rotated round all divisions of ACE Winches, in order for them to achieve a good understanding of the manufacturing process, and

the challenges they could face.

 

HR manager for Ace Winches, Shirley Butcher, said: "The course with ITCA was designed to fit our needs and has provided the graduates with

extensive knowledge of manufacturing processes in order to start their graduate programme with experience in a workshop environment. We are

committed to developing homegrown talent, as skill shortages are of a significant concern for all engineering companies. Our CEO began his career 

as a marine engineer apprentice and he understands the importance of apprenticeships and graduate programmes to both the business and to

young people."

PSV takes on new apprentice

 

After a very successful five week trial-period, PSV has decided to take on a new apprentice from ITCA training in Aberdeen.

 

Aaron Causby, aged 17, from Portlethen will start his four-year apprenticeship on Monday, March 25th. Aaron showed a very good work ethic and

strong willingness to learn during his trial period. At the end of that term, it was decided to offer him an apprenticeship in his chosen field of welding.

The plan is for Aaron to become a fully qualified multi-coded pipe welder at the end of his four-year apprenticeship.

 

PSV General Manager, Barry Allan, says: "There is a real need to train the younger generation at the moment as there is a severe skill shortage in

Aberdeen, especially within the black trades. PSV found the ITCA trial placement extremely useful as a way of identifying potential candidates for the

apprenticeship scheme. We wish Aaron the best of luck in his chosen field and hopefully we can provide the desired level of training to enable him to

flourish."

 

Currently, PSV also has two more mature employees undergoing apprenticeships. Matthew Flett and Callum Gordon, who have been with PSV for

some time, commenced their involvement in the Modern Apprenticeships scheme with ITCA towards the end of last year.

Sign up for apprenticeships - Aberdeen Press & Journal February 2013

 

From Left: ASCO European Operations and Logistics Director, Zak Fleming with learners, Scott Partington, Alex McGregor and Greg Keith

 

Apprenticeships are fast becoming more important within the workplace as a means of securing new talent and bringing fresh ideas to a

business. Although traditional apprenticeship schemes including engineering, electrical, welding and fabrication are still popular, disciplines

like administration and logistics are becoming more in demand. According to Skills Development Scotland (SDS) more than 1,700 people

enrolled in a business and administration apprenticeship in June last year, which is a 46%, increase compared to that for the term of

2009-2010.

 

Aberdeen based, ITCA, which is one of the largest engineering apprenticeship training firms in Scotland works with a range of firms across the

North-east to provide training for young employees and although they offer the traditional disciplines, the training centre has an experienced

team of trainers on-hand to deliver the business focused apprenticeships. The firm has been providing the North-east with apprenticeship

courses for more than 20 years and work closely with employers and the SDS to deliver their apprenticeship courses across a wide range of

disciplines.

 

ITCA works with leading international oil and gas services company, ASCO and provides apprentices within a range of sectors for the firm

including business logistics and administration. ASCO currently has three apprentices employed who are on an apprenticeship scheme with

ITCA, two apprentices within the Business Administration sector and one in the Operations and Logistics.

 

Greg Keith (22) from Ellon is currently a Logistics and Operations management apprentice and is employed with ASCO full-time and has 18

months left in his apprenticeship programme. He said, "The apprenticeship has given me a great opportunity to earn and learn at the same

time and it's a job with real prospects. I've gained lots of varied work experience and I can see lots of opportunities for progression. 

My boss was also an apprentice at ASCO so straight away I knew that there were fantastic opportunities for me here."

 

Alex McGregor (20) from Pitmedden is currently doing a Business Administration apprenticeship with ITCA focusing on the transport industry.

He said: "I felt it was a great opportunity to get involved within an ever expanding market. My apprenticeship with ITCA and ASCO has taught

me how to work efficiently within a team and I have learned various other skills to help assist me in my day to day tasks within my role at

ASCO."

 

Scott Partington, (29) originally form Manchester is working within the marine sector doing a Business Administration apprenticeship with

ASCO.  He said: "I chose to do an apprenticeship because I wanted to build a career rather than just a job with no prospects. Through my

apprenticeship I have gained experience in freight but most of my time is in operations dealing with all the day-to-day requests of our clients.

I am constantly learning new areas of the business, which I really enjoy."

 

ASCO European Operations and Logistics Director, Zak Fleming, said, "At ASCO we recognise the importance of investing in continuous

learning and development for all ages. We see our apprentice programme as a vital link in the succession planning process and an important

step in building a stronger business. Over the past two years we've invested in 14 apprentices, eight in Logistics and Operations management

and six in Business Administration across Aberdeen and Peterhead."

 

ITCA manages in excess of 100 apprenticeships per year through SDS and from around 70 firms, mainly operating in the energy sector to ensure

workers have the correct training to support their job role.

 

Managing Director of ITCA, June Jones, said: "Apprenticeships are a valuable asset to a company, the training that the learners receive has

a good mix of practical and written work giving the learner first hand, on the job experience. Apprenticeships give them certification for the job

role that they are undertaking and a clear path for career progression."

Securing the talent of the future - Aberdeen Press & Journal December 2012

ITCA Engineering Placements

Aberdeen based, ITCA, is one of the largest engineering apprenticeship-training firms in Aberdeen and currently has four young engineers eager to

secure employment or a work placement to allow them to continue on to the next stage of their training which is due to commence in coming weeks.

The firm which was launched in 1989 works with a range of firms across the North-east to provide training for young employees in sectors including,

welding, fabrication, mechanical engineering, business administration and logistics and currently manages around 100 apprenticeships per year

from around 70 North-east firms.

Skills Development Scotland (SDS), which is the national skills body for apprenticeships, released new figures earlier this year which revealed there

are 12,000 businesses in Scotland that employ 34,000 modern apprentices. ITCA works closely with employers and SDS, and the training facility's

completion success rate for modern apprenticeships is around 10% higher than both the Scottish and national average.

The modern apprenticeship scheme offers individuals over the age of 16 the chance to learn new competences and build on their existing skills.

Apprenticeships provide a mixture of on and off the job learning that ensures trainees are being taught the skills that work best for business.

 

Managing Director of ITCA, June Jones, said: "There are many benefits to companies employing an apprentice; not only is it an investment to their

future, but it also secures the future of the energy sector and brings fresh new talent along with new ideas and a new way of thinking. The learners at

our facility gain great skills through a mix of practical and theory work enabling them to have a wider understanding of what the job entails. Companies

should be looking to invest in staff through training to build on existing knowledge. Apprenticeships have the potential to add value to a business and

encourage a loyal workforce."

 

However, employing an apprentice can provide many benefits to a business:

Filling a skills gap

As well as being trained to suit your business needs an apprentice provides a skills platform for the future. They are trained in-line with industry

technologies and their on the job experience means they are already trained to business levels.

Motivation levels

Apprenticeships are aimed at individuals above the age of 16 and therefore they possess an eagerness to work and are very motivated - this could

have a direct effect on existing members of the team providing a high morale within the business.

Improve the business bottom line

Apprenticeships help to improve productivity in the workplace and it has been known that employing an apprentice can show an organisation in a

more competitive light. Training apprentices can also be more cost effective than hiring skilled staff, as there are no recruitment costs involved.

Loyal team

Hiring apprentices is an investment for a business and shows an apprentice that they have been invested in which gives them a sense of commitment

to the organisation and a higher sense of loyalty, which could result in them staying at the firm for longer
