Sliders UK Ltd employee Teague Robertson recently completed his GQA Level 2 Fabrication apprenticeship and was presented withi his certificates by NLTG tutor Paul Fairhurst.
Teague is a fabricator at Sliders UK Ltd, a leading fabricator of what were the first Secured By Design patio doors in the UK. They also fabricate Composite Doors, Bi-fold Doors and Aluminium windows to a wide section of the fenestration industry from their large plant in Walton Summit near Preston in Lancashire.
Teague said “I am pleased that I completed the course and am grateful to Paul for his support, as well as that from Dan, Rick and my director Martin Kirk. I came into this industry with no experience and over my time at Sliders have learned a lot. During the programme I learned to prep, weld, gear and hang which was a benefit both to me and Sliders,”
Sliders UK Ltd have put 41 staff through different programmes with NLTG over a number of years and are currently considering the next batch. Production director Martin Kirk said “we like to be pro-active with staff who show commitment and determination at Sliders UK; quite a few of the staff here, including myself, have completed qualifications through NLTG. I started as a fabricator a number of years ago and am now a production director, this has helped us to promote good practice and standardise our approach to training, and we look forward to a continued relationship with NLTG “
