Rock Power Connections welcomes Josh as the latest addition to the Rock Team!
Josh is working towards his electrotechnical apprenticeship in electrical installations, by studying at the Heart of Worcestershire College one day a week alongside joining the electrical engineers on distribution network sites.
Josh brings over four years domestic experience and a desire to develop his skills on substation sites.
Finance Director, Matt explains “It is great to add another apprentice to the growing Rock Team. We take pride in investing in training and development opportunities and it is really impressive to see how quickly other trainees have acquired new electrical skills with the coaching and mentoring of well-established Site Managers. It breeds a real ethos of quality and competence.”
We asked Josh to talk us through his experience so far.
Welcome to Rock Power Connections. Tell us a bit about yourself and why you have decided to complete an Electro Technical Apprenticeship?
I attended The Duke of York’s Royal Military School in Kent, during this time I developed a can-do attitude and participated in trips and expeditions around the world, such as a month in the Indian Himalayas. I decided to complete an Electro Technical Apprentice because I wanted a new challenge and, whilst working for Joseph Woods Builders, I got speaking to electricians and I knew it was for me.
What did you do before you joined Rock Power Connections?
I was an apprentice electrician for a domestic company called Ford Electrical.
What are you looking forwards to most about working with the Rock team?
I’m mostly looking forward to developing my electrical knowledge and learning new skills. I believe Rock Power Connections is the best opportunity for me to achieve this.
How has your first week been?
My first week has been great. Rock has already sent me on courses, made me feel welcome and integrated into the workforce.
What advice would you give to other young people thinking about securing an Apprenticeship?
The best advice I could give young people thinking about securing an apprenticeship would be to get in touch with your local college and companies in your chosen field. In my opinion, on-the-job training is the best way of learning.
