Hörmann UK launch apprenticeship scheme

Matt & Callum Irons

Working together with SMB College Group at their Stephenson Campus in Coalville, Hörmann UK have introduced an apprenticeship scheme to train and educate the next generation of industrial service engineers, whilst providing young people with valuable real-world experience in the workplace.

The first apprentice Callum Irons, who joined Hörmann in early August, is working towards the Level 2 Engineering Operative apprenticeship standard. He will spend two years on the scheme, splitting his time between studying at college for his academic qualification and working on-site with Service Engineer Matt Irons, his mentor and father.

Phil Clark, Industrial Service Manager at Hörmann UK comments: 
“Training has always been a priority at Hörmann, and we have always provided comprehensive training for the industry, strengthened by the launch of the Hörmann Academy in 2019. 
The introduction of an apprenticeship scheme further enhances this commitment and is a natural extension to our training plans which enables us to offer young people the opportunity to work alongside knowledgeable, experienced staff and acquire job-specific skills.

“It also helps us to expand our team of Service Engineers with operatives who are equipped with an extensive understanding of the market and have been trained by us in the skills necessary to ensure that our service offering is second to none.

“Callum is the first of three apprentices who will be recruited to work in the Service Team, with further schemes being developed and introduced for other departments within the company.”
Paul Dancer, Director of Curriculum for Engineering at SMB College Group, added: 
“SMB College Group are delighted to be embarking on this exciting new initiative with Hörmann UK to educate a series of well-trained industrial service engineers. In addition to excellent education in the workplace with Hörmann UK, the apprentices will learn from industry-expert teaching staff in the state-of-the-art facilities at our Stephenson Campus in Coalville.”
The apprenticeship scheme is designed to provide a structured training and work programme which will provide the necessary experience and knowledge required to become a skilled Hörmann Service Engineer. 

Callum will have the opportunity to be involved in the service and repair of the most advance doors and loading technology throughout the industrial market.
