Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2018: Current Apprentice Devon

As well as benefitting from invaluable work experience guided by highly skilled and experienced members of the TJL team, our apprentices also attend college to assist them in building the appropriate level of knowledge and skill required for them to be successful in the their future roles.

Devon, an Apprentice Site Joiner currently working through the 2nd year of his apprenticeship, attends West College Scotland to develop his knowledge and practical abilities in preparation for his career in construction.  He is performing well both at college and on site and is enjoying the apprenticeship experience.

At Thomas Johnstone Ltd we are privileged to have a large number of enthusiastic and hard working apprentices who will go on to become the future talent of our industry.


Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2018: Current Apprentice Ryan

As part of Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2018, we are focussing on our new, current and ex-apprentices and their journeys and continued successes with Thomas Johnstone Ltd.

Our apprentices benefit from extensive work experience on site, taking learning outside of the traditional classroom setting and giving them invaluable practical experience of live working environments.

One of our current apprentices, Ryan Watson, serves as an excellent example of how our apprentices benefit from our experienced employees helping them to gain hands-on practical experience.  Presently based on site at Hunterston B Power Station, Ryan is working closely with a highly skilled and experienced team; thriving and building practical skills which he will use upon completion of his apprenticeship.  His efforts were recently noticed by one of CITB's Apprenticeship Officers, who commented on how great it was to witness apprentices wearing the correct PPE and following health & safety rules.

Ryan certainly has a bright future ahead of him.


Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2018: New Apprentices

There is no better time than Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2018 to announce some new additions to our team: 2 Apprentice Bench Hand Joiners and a Paint Shop Apprentice.

In February we advertised a number of apprenticeship positions, and we are delighted to now have 3 new members of our manufacturing team who will complete their apprenticeships whilst gaining invaluable work experience.  They will be working closely with other employees who can inspire them, including our Manufacturing Manager - who himself is a former apprentice - and a number of existing and former apprentices who are part of our very busy and successful manufacturing team.

We are pleased that we have been able to give an apprentice impacted by the recent Carillion issues another chance; retaining future talent for the industry and securing this apprentice's bright future.
