Apprentice Presentation Review 2017

BEMA has now completed its third year of training apprentices in the "Engineering Foundation Training" course with the number increasing to twenty one apprentices. The nine months training has consisted of continuous development within a workshop environment with the objective to equip the candidates with a firm knowledge of manual machining, workshop fitting skills, hand tool abilities and CNC capabilities.

Our twenty one candidates from eight companies based in the Bristol and North Somerset areas have shown great competence throughout their training which was recognised by their respective employees who attended the presentation evening on the 22nd of June this year.

There were many prize winners on the evening which was not only attended by their companies but also parents and representatives of the commercial suppliers to the centre.

The initial success of the BEMA Training Centre not only attracted interest from other BEMA member companies but also from non-members and the new recruits that will start in September this year.
