Dawson Shanahan opens engineering apprentice training school

22 December, 2016

Precision engineering company, Dawson Shanahan, has opened a dedicated apprentice training school at its Welshpool-based engineering facility.


Dawson Shanahan works closely with colleges in the local area to provide apprentices with the training and skills they need to pursue a fulfilling and successful career in the engineering sector. Working alongside experienced engineers, Dawson Shanahan’s apprentices work on real projects, led by Ken Toop, senior process development engineer, who was responsible for the development of the training school.

Following the opening of the training school, the company’s apprentices now have access to a dedicated classroom to learn about the theoretical side of engineering. Importantly, there is also an area featuring different types of machinery. Here, the apprentices can put theory into practice and hone their skills in a range of areas.

In addition to the improved training facilities, the extra space will allow Dawson Shanahan to increase its intake of apprentices in the future. At present, it has five apprentices in training for various National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs), but there is capacity for more and the company expects to fill these spaces to meet the growing demand for its apprenticeship scheme amongst young people keen to explore a career in engineering.

“Training the next generation of engineers is an incredibly important responsibility for all of us at Dawson Shanahan and the new apprentice training school helps us to do this to the best of our ability,” said Toop, in charge of apprentice training at Dawson Shanahan. “Apprentices now have greater access to everything they need to develop their skills and earn their engineering qualifications.”
