Supporting apprentices through lockdown

Looking to help apprentices during this difficult time, gas, plumbing and electrical training company Steve Willis Training has created a revised delivery model for remote learning. The company currently has over 300 gas engineering and electrical apprentices training at its two centres in Burgess Hill, West Sussex and Portchester, near Portsmouth. Every apprentice has been contacted to discuss their wellbeing and their employment position, and the Steve Willis Apprenticeship Team will continue to talk to them all on a weekly basis to make sure they’re okay.

Apprenticeships manager Jake Gibbons explains: “Our Apprenticeships Team has done a fantastic job devising remote training programmes to minimise the disruption for our apprentices during the lockdown. The training centre is certainly quiet without them on site, and we’re looking forward to seeing them all again soon.”

While not quite business as usual, the company has been able to reassure its trainees that the training and assessment they need for their professional qualifications will be rearranged as soon as the lockdown is lifted.

MD Steve Willis adds: “This is a challenging time for all businesses, and we’re doing all we can to support our customers. We’ll be opening our gates again as soon as we can, and we’re currently planning all the changes that will be needed to ensure a safe working environment.”
