Whilst the pandemic has left some young people frustrated, Ecovision Apprentice, Caine Ward, has gone from strength to strength, not only completing his Level 1 Certificate in Construction Skills (Electrical), but also being recently being awarded Apprentice of the Year by his Apprenticeship provider, Loughborough College.
Like many, Caine didn’t have the best time at School and wasn’t sure which path to follow, but having enjoyed work experience with Ecovision Asset Management, he applied for an Apprenticeship with us through Loughborough College.
Since then, the praise has been relentless. Customers, staff, management, his college, suppliers, all have been extremely complimentary of him. He has a unique willingness to learn, develop and succeed in both his role and his career within renewables.
As an apprentice, Caine has excelled. As a member of the team, he has become invaluable and continues to support our senior engineer, Emma Dutton who said, “for a level 2 apprentice, his work is outstanding.” His training with Ecovision Asset Management has included monitoring platforms, replacing inverters, and even installing pigeon mesh protection systems!
At Ecovision, our people are our largest investment and with the investment in Caine as one of our apprentices, we are seeing the benefits, reaping the dividends of some time, effort and energy put into the future of this growing industry.
We hope that organisations are inspired by our experience with apprentices and consider the difference they can make, not just to business results, but also also to the individuals that will need to be trained now to manage and support the much needed growth of renewable energy in the future. It truly is a great investment.
Well done Caine!
