As we move towards the summer months, the government roadmap out of lockdown is progressing and we all look forward to the further lifting of the covid – 19 restrictions with optimism.

Considering the impact of the pandemic we have managed to navigate our way through this positively. A solid work bank for the first quarter of 2021 has hopefully provided us with a firm foundation for the remainder of the year.

Apprenticeship News

North Lindsey College and Jack Tighe Ltd are celebrating the success of our apprenticeship training partnership with a virtual awards ceremony. The celebration marks a major milestone from when the Highways Agency training committee succeeded in putting together the syllabus to gain approval as the first ever recognised Apprenticeship for Industrial Coatings Applicator.

Jack Tighe Ltd are now looking for their fourth cohort of apprentice recruits, following previous apprentices who were the very first in the UK to pass their end point assessment with Distinctions.

Jason Simpson, apprentice said,

“I joined as a 30-year-old with no experience of construction sites or industrial painting. Within a matter of weeks, I was trained to a standard where I was competent on sites. I’ve worked all over the UK from Glasgow down to Isle of Wight and everywhere in-between. On structures ranging from bridges to aircraft carrier navy ships. I’m currently working at Wembley stadium!”

John Whittaker, Training Manager for Jack Tighe ltd said,

“It has been amazing watching the journey these individuals have undertaken and watching them grow into the position of industrial coating applicators, yes sure there has been some ups and downs, some Apprentices leaving but nothing can take away the ambition of those remaining, from start to finish the Apprentices have shown fantastic attitude towards their end goals.”

Alfie Dunn, Trainer/Assessor at North Lindsey College said,

“When I compare them now to how they were at the start of their apprenticeship, it makes me proud to be associated with them and would like to say well done and good luck for the future.”

On behalf of Jack Tighe, we would like to say a massive well done to the Apprentices on all of their hard work they have achieved over their time so far.
