Anglia Factors has reinforced its commitment to providing apprenticeships; quality, entry level training, by taking on its third apprentice in three years. Callum Dedman-Munro, 17, from Kesgrave, is studying plumbing and heating at Suffolk New College and wants to be a plumber. He is the latest apprentice to be taken on by Anglia Factors, the kitchen and interiors specialist based in Martlesham. At the end of Callum’s two-year full-time apprenticeship, he will become a qualified plumber.
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.
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.”
