Ellis (L) and Nicky (R) at Stokesley School's apprenticeship evening
Analox have been inspiring young minds to consider a career in gas monitoring at an apprenticeship information evening.
The evening was hosted by Stokesley School on 21 March to showcase the variety of apprenticeship opportunities there are in the local area for students in Years 11 to 13.
Information available at the event included how to apply for an apprenticeship, how they work and the various levels available.
Analox was one of many local businesses invited to the secondary school and sixth form, which is located less than a mile away from our company’s headquarters.
This is not the first time Analox have been involved with the school, as last year one of our former apprentices Jack Price represented us at their Engineering Careers evening.
Jack Price joined Analox in July 2013 as an Apprentice Research and Development Technician and has now successfully completed his apprenticeship to take on the role of Electronics Technician.
As a huge supporter of apprentices, including celebrating National Apprenticeship Week, we were delighted to be given the chance to talk to students about the career opportunities we could offer them.
Three of our colleagues went to the event, including, Julie Cole, HR Manager; Nicky Cope, Business Administrative Support Assistant and one of our very own apprentices Ellis Johnson, Apprentice Engineering Documentation Technician.
Ellis joined Analox in March 2014 and is one of two apprentices currently at our company. He previously studied a BTEC engineering course before taking up an apprenticeship and said that he enjoys all aspects of his current role.
Julie Cole, HR Manager, said: “Analox fully support apprenticeships and believe young people need to be aware of the variety of opportunities available to them after finishing their GCSE’s. Our stand received interest from some of the students and we hope to strengthen our link with educational organisations by working with Stokesley School more in the future.”
