North Lindsey College teams up with Jack Tighe Ltd to offer an exciting new apprenticeship opportunity

North Lindsey College is working in partnership with Jack Tighe Ltd to offer a traineeship and a new apprenticeship to this region focusing on industrial coatings application.

For anyone interested in a career in engineering, construction or as a vehicle body repair this may be another opportunity to consider.  The traineeship is a twelve-week programme and is aimed at individuals who would like a career in a very specialised industry, a profession with work all over the UK with each job requiring a range of skilled trades to deliver each contract.  This traineeship could lead to an apprenticeship and then employment in a role where individuals could work across a range of sectors including the engineering, railway, motor vehicle or marine sectors.

Martyn Butler (Curriculum Leader in Engineering) said, “This is a unique opportunity to undertake a ground-breaking apprenticeship initiative in conjunction with Jack Tighe Ltd who are one of the largest industrial surface coatings and protection companies in the UK.”  

Typical Skills that will be developed include: various methods of shot blasting, measuring the thickness of paint, environmental controls, working at heights, working to an industry standard, surface preparation and cleaning techniques, working permits and use of the non-powered and powered equipment and tools used in industrial coatings work.

Trainees will undertake work experience at Jack Tighe and further training delivered at North Lindsey College. On successful achievement of the traineeship there is the opportunity to be selected for an apprenticeship with Jack Tighe.

Anyone interested in applying for this opportunity will need to contact Customer Services on 01724 281111, email info@northlindsey.ac.uk or apply online via www.northlindsey-applynow.co.uk
