Did you know Delkia employed apprentices? Jack Edwards is currently working at our Cumbria office as an Electrical Technician Apprentice.


“Growing up in Cumbria, I studied subjects like electronics, chemistry and resistant materials at my school. After two years at college, focusing on electrical installation, I started looking for an apprenticeship.


Being offered the apprenticeship at Delkia was exciting. I’m part of the team and learning lots of new skills, including first-aid training and how to use auto CAD.


I have also been inspired by my manager who has a master’s degree and works as technical and engineering manager. When I finished my Level 3 maintenance operation electronics technician apprenticeship after 36 months, I will be a fully qualified electrical technician. However, my ambition is to eventually get my degree further down the line after gaining more experience.”


Apprenticeships come in various forms, meaning they can suit most people. By attending college one day a week and working the rest, work experience can supplement studies granting apprentices vital insights into the working world.
