2012 B. E. T. A. APPRENTICE GRADUANTS
This year BETA is pleased to announce that it has four managed apprentices who have successfully completed their educational studies at Jewel and Esk college and have now achieved their Higher National Cerificate in Engineering Systems.
This year will be the last year that Jewel and Esk College will hold a Graduation ceremony under Jewel and Esk College as they are now going to be part of Edinburgh College from October 1st 2012. This new college will be made up from the three colleges from Edinburgh; "Stevensons College Edinburgh", "Edinburghs Telford College" and "Jewel and Esk College".
The apprentices who graduated this year at the Usher Hall, Edinburgh on 28th September 2012 were:
Mark Riddel: Mark started his apprenticeship in September 2010 having already spent a year at Jewel and Esk college studying and gaining his National Certificate in Engineering System. During that same year he also studied and gained his SVQ level 2 in Performing Engineering Operations. Mark applied to MacTaggart Scott Enginering Ltd as an Apprentice Engineering. As Mark had gained the qualification a first year apprentice would go through, Mark was allowed to enter straight into the second year of the appretnice programme. Having now gained his Higher National Cetrificate Mark is now working towards gaining his SVQ level 3 in Engineering Manufacture (Fitting and Assembly).
On Completion of this Qualifiaction he will then hopefully achieve his Technician Modern Apprenticeship Certificate from SEMTA in Engineering Manufacturing (Fitting and Assembly) after BETA applies for it
Liam Gibson and Liam Stewart: Both Liams work at Turnbull and Scott Enginering Ltd in Hawick.
Liam Gibson works on Manual Machining equipment which involves learning how to use Lathes, Milling Machines, Jig Borers and Pipe bending equipment to produce the components that go into making the products Turnbull and Scott produce. As with the apprentices above Laim has already gained his National Certificate in Engineering Systems along with his SVQ level 2 in Performing Engineering Operations. However, in Liam's case he attended college full time while being employed at Turnbull and scott and manged by BETA as an Apprentice Engineer. Thus, learning while he was learning. As can be seen from the photo Laim Gibson (left) has now achieved his Higher National Certificate in Engineering Systems. Liam is now completing his SVQ level 3 in Engineering Manufacture (Manual Machining) with additionalty in Jig Boring and Pipe forming and bending.
On successfull completion of this VQ level 3 BETA will apply to SEMTA supplying evidence of his apprenticeship training to get him awarded his Techinician Modern apprenticeship certificate in Engineering Manufacture (Manual Machining)
Liam Stewart works in the Fabrication Department of Turnbull and Scott where he has learnt welding skills in Metal Inert Gas (MIG), Metal Active Gas (MAG) and other Continuous Wire Processes. As with the apprentices above Laim has already gained his National Certificate in Engineering Systems along with his SVQ level 2 in Performing Engineering Operations. However as with Liam Gibson, Liam Stewart has followed the same path and attended college full time while being employed at Turnbull and Scott and manged by BETA. The photo of Laim Stewart (Right) shows he has now achieved his Higher National Certificate in Engineering Systems. Liam is completeing his SVQ level 3 in Fabrication and Welding Enginering (Manual Welding). On successfull completion of this VQ level 3 BETA will apply to SEMTA supplying evidence of his apprenticeship training to get him awarded his Techinician Modern Apprenticeship certificate in Fabrication and Welding Engineering (Manual Welding)
BETA would like to take this opportunity to wish all the above apprentices congratulaitons on thi great achieviement and wish them every success in their bright carreer as Technician Engineers as and when they achieve there ther final MA certificate.
