Ripponden-based servicing specialist JLA has seen one of its apprentices graduate to a fully qualified engineer.
Jamie Leyland recently completed his 4-year apprenticeship in mechanical and electrical engineering to progress his career.
The company’s LinkedIn account posted comments from Leyland, who said: “My apprenticeship at JLA has provided me with a wide range of skills and experiences to become a qualified field services engineer.
“I’ve been provided with everything I need to develop my career with a company which obviously cares for its customers. The support I’ve been given has been amazing; from my regional operations manager and my technical skills coach and the other engineers in JLA, they have all played a key part in helping me complete my apprenticeship and become a fully qualified engineer.”
Leyland recommended: “An engineering apprenticeship at JLA is a fantastic opportunity! For anyone thinking about it, I’d just say go for it! It’s been the best decision I’ve made.
“I had no prior knowledge or experience in engineering but JLA saw the potential in me and supported me through the apprenticeship. I’m really proud of what I’ve achieved over the last four years. I wish I’d done it earlier.”
