Managers Thoughts

According to Steve Askins (ERIKS EMS Director) ERIKS Apprentices are "the future of the EMS business and that their skills and potential would ensure that our company continues to strengthen and grow".

Keith Hargreaves (ERIKS EMS Operations Director) commended ERIKS EMS Service Centre Managers who continue to mentor our Apprentices and aid their development in the workplace.

Brian O’Leary, Management Services Director, expressed the pride he felt in ERIKS Apprentices and said that "if only it had been possible, he would have declared them all winners"!

The Programme

During the structured 4-year training programme, Apprentices each held a full time position within the Electro Mechanical Services Division, working as part of a team in the workshop developing skills for rewinding, repairing electro-mechanical equipment such as motors, gearboxes and pumps as well as gaining an understanding and exposure to condition monitoring. Each Apprentice combined theory and practical activity assessed by both ERIKS UK and Loughborough College over the four year duration of the apprenticeship programme.
