We have recruited three new apprentices from West College Scotland in Clydebank.
Ross Simpson (17), Daniel Coll (25) and Liam Thomson (17) joined the team this month along with a new Junior Engineer, Struan MacGuire (22).
David McDougall, Head of Training & Development at DTG, said: “Our apprenticeship scheme enables us to train the next generation with the specialist, practical skills and knowledge that is required in our industry. Throughout our business, collectively we have more than 800 years of experience, and that can’t simply be bought-in, so our commitment to growing our own is critical to our future success.”
DTGen currently employs eight apprentices who are all West of Scotland College electrical engineering students. The business has long history of staff who have developed through apprenticeships into various, and often, senior roles in the business.
During their time with the business, apprentices receive a structured programme of classroom and practical training across the workshop and out in the field job shadowing key members of the team for new installations, commissioning, servicing and aftermarket.
With a dedicated in-house training and development department head, the business maintains a pro-active and on-going programme of continuous improvement for staff to ensure they have the knowledge and skills to deliver their jobs to the highest standards.
Just last month, the business launched a brand-new training facility onsite at its Glasgow HQ. ‘The Training Academy’ offers an enhanced resource for staff as well as external clients requiring specialist training.
