The apprentice & boss job swap - Pendennis ShipyardPosted: 16th of October 2013 by Craig
Pendennis Shipyard has earned a reputation for excelling in training Apprentices to work in the superyacht sector, creating custom built yachts and working on refits of existing 30metre-plus superyachts.
Four Directors, Mike Carr, Joint MD, Toby Allies, Director of Sales and Marketing; Stephen Hills, Projects Director; and Charlie Ross, Operations Director; experienced the daily work life for an apprentice undertaking job swaps within the fabrication, surface finishing, and electrical teams. In return, the apprentices, who included Tom Blewett, a second year Fabricator, Nick Hawling, second year Surface Finisher, Sam Coltman a third year engineer, and Matt Angove who is a fourth year Electrician, were given an insight into the workload of the senior management team at Pendennis.
Local MP Sarah Newton visited Pendennis for the day to see the job swap in progress. Sarah was also given the opportunity to get directly involved, working with Luke Hocking, a third year Joiner undertaking veneering in the joinery workshop.
