Apprenticeships have been a great success at Alpha Rail and has given apprentices the opportunity to start their career and secure full-time work after their studies.
Choosing the apprenticeship path as opposed to university offers first-hand work experience as well as an income. Upon completion of the apprenticeship, a relevant qualification is awarded along with a potential job offer to become a full-time employee. In a world where past work experience is desirable on a CV, an apprenticeship is a great way to get started.
Three Alpha Rail apprentices have recently been presented with their certificates for Engineering Technical Support. Working in the technical department, they prepare technical drawings for the metalwork projects that take place all over the UK. Their main role is to supply manufacture drawings to the shop floor and prepare drawings for clients’ approval.

Adam has completed his intermediate Level 2 course and will be moving on to progress through the Level 3 advanced course. Jake and Ryan, who have been a part of the Alpha Rail team for a longer time, have now completed their apprenticeships and will continue to work at Alpha Rail with their Level 3 qualification in Engineering Technical Support.
Dean Briggs, Technical Director at Alpha Rail commented: “I was very happy to present our technical apprentices with their certificates, which are well deserved following all of their hard work and commitment to their studies. They have been responsible for producing technical drawings on some of our most prestigious and high-profile projects. I look forward to working with them moving forward as they have become core members of the Alpha Rail team.”
