Four apprentice engineers at AutoCoding Systems have all recently completed a two year day release course which has resulted in them attaining a BTEC Level 3 Diploma and NVQ Extended Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.

Lewis Brailsford, Matthew Hughes, Ross Hughes and Paul Lawton achieved Distinctions and Merits across the twelve units studied which, considering all the modular assignments were completed in their own time, demonstrates their hard work and commitment.

The qualifications are designed to equip individuals with the practical skills, knowledge and understanding required to work effectively within the electrical/electronic engineering industry.  AutoCoding Systems made the decision to invest in an Apprenticeship scheme to ensure their engineers received a high level of practical and theoretical training, alongside professional “on-the-job” mentoring from experienced AutoCoding Project Engineers.

Mick Brailsford, Engineering and Supply Chain Manager commented, “We are extremely proud of what the guys have achieved whilst coping with the constantly heavy workload demanded of them to meet customer orders, both in the UK and globally.  As a high calibre software engineering business, it’s important for us to continually develop our engineering skills and capabilities as demands for higher levels of automation within manufacturing continues to increase.”

Managing Director, Mike Hughes, went on to say, “Our people are our most important asset and we want to continue to develop everyone’s knowledge, skills, performance, behaviour and attitude; so that they can do the best for both the company and themselves.”

With such great results, it’s hoped that there will be the opportunity to progress towards HNC and HND level qualifications in the future, but only after they’ve all had a well-earned rest from studying.
