Vantage Vehicle Conversions is delighted to welcome Callum Hesbrook-Key to its Apprenticeship Scheme, as its latest recruit.

Callum, aged 16,  joins the Apprenticeship Scheme directly from completing his GCSE’s at Madeley Academy, and is training to be a plastic welder, an important vehicle conversion skill for the building of van drawer units and dog boxes.

Callum is working alongside, Mark Bissell, Vantage’s expert plastic welder.  With over a decade of experience he will be providing Callum’s on-the-job training, which is supported by the Heart of Worcestershire College Apprenticeship Scheme, with tudors from the college visiting regularly to monitor Callum’s progress.

Callum commented:

‘I’ve loved my first few weeks working alongside Mark at Vantage, I’ve learnt so much  already, but it’s been exhausting. It’s great to be learning a trade, and earning at the same time.’

Vantage Vehicle Conversions has been running a successful apprenticeship scheme for over five years, with the company dedicated to training young people and retaining them within the business in full time roles once they have successfully completed their apprenticeship.

Mark Cheshire, Managing Director at Vantage Vehicle Conversions said:

‘Our Apprenticeship Scheme is a really important part of our recruitment plan as it allows us to train young people to develop the conversion and fitting skills we require, and to instil quality standards right from the outset.  Our goal is to retain and develop our apprentices to take on key roles within the company, Connor Evans is a perfect example of this, he joined us four years ago and is now a Team Leader.’
