Three bright sparks are learning the tools of their trade in Melksham after being selected for apprenticeships with a leading energy firm.
They were whittled down from thousands of applicants, and started last month at Scottish and Southern Electric’s depot on Spa Road, Melksham.
Joseph Humphrey, 16, pictured far right, from Melksham, is training to become a fitter, while Jack Weekes, 18, left, from Chippenham and Thomas Dorman, 24, from Cheltenham, are learning how to become cable jointers.
They are part of a 50-strong class who will be based at key SSE sites in the south of England. In the next three/four years they will work towards higher qualifications, such as City and Guilds Technical Certificates, Apprenticeship qualifications and QCFs.
Ryan Sadler, SSE’s head of learning and development, said: “This programme is an investment in our future.”
