Speed Plastics is proud to support apprenticeships; passing on vital engineering skills to the younger generation.
Apprentice, Jake Gascoigne has been an apprentice at Speed Plastics for nearly two years through Chesterfield College and describes it as an ‘incredible experience’.
Jake said: “It’s great to learn the theory at college and then come into a real life environment and put what I have learnt into practice.”
“Being an apprentice means I have been able to move around the company learning different roles and techniques. I have had a go at everything from making tools, repairing tools and making modifications to machines. To be honest, no two days have ever been the same and I feel very lucky to be able to learn on the job and gain my qualification in such a nice environment.”
