Anglia Factors continues commitment to apprenticeships

L-R Mentor Joe Harris with CallumAnglia Factors, the kitchen and interiors specialist, has taken on their third apprentice in three years and reinforces its commitment to providing quality entry-level training.
Seventeen-year-old Callum Dedman-Munro from Kesgrave is studying plumbing and heating at Suffolk New College and wants to be a plumber. His two-year full-time apprenticeship with Anglia Factors will end with him becoming a qualified plumber.
Callum is the third apprentice Anglia factors has taken on in the last three years, working out of their Martlesham showroom and workshop. He has been with Anglia Factors for three months and his mentor, Joe Harris, says he’s a fast learner and a willing worker who shows great potential.
Speaking on apprenticeships in general, Daniel Barr, Owner of Anglia Factors, said: “It’s always a tough decision to take on an apprentice because it’s a huge commitment to deliver quality training – especially when you’re one of the few businesses in your sector providing entry-level training. But we believe in taking the time to train people thoroughly to do a great job to the highest standard. We believe this goes beyond the two year apprenticeships and encourage our apprentices to stay with us long term so they can enhance and perfect their skills with the continuing support of their mentor.”
