Metaltech Apprentice Scoops Top Award (September 2014)

Metaltech Apprentice Scoops Top Award

Jake Walker one of Metaltech's Apprentice’s has won a top award at Derwentside College. Jake's award is for "Excellence in Mechanical Enginnering Apprenticeship". Jake will be presented with his award at the College's presentation evening on November 30th 2014 by Andrew Hodgson, CEO of Soil Machine Dynamics Ltd, Wallsend.

Graeme Forster, Managing Director of Metaltech adds:

"Jake has reacted exceptionally well to all the metallurgical and technical challenges I have set him within the last 12 months. To the uninitiated Metallurgy is the study of the physical and chemical behaviour of metals and alloys a subject which was new to Jake when he started his apprenticeship at Metaltech.

As a heat treatment company Metaltech further specialises in a branch of metallurgy that uses thermal processes to alter the physical and sometimes the chemical properties of metals and alloys. For a young lad fresh from school the whole concept of working in a heat treatment laboratory must have been daunting to say the least. Jake has readily grasped the fundamentals of metallurgy that I have taught him through being his mentor and has developed remarkably quickly over the last 12 months to become a key and valuable addition to the work force at Metaltech. In combination with his day release studies at Derwentside College Jake has continued to learn and his award has been well deserved due to his dedication to detail and his ability to continually enhance his skills has to be applauded.

I look forward to mentoring him over the next 12 months of his apprenticeship and take this opportunity to thank Derwentside College for offering Jake the chance to educate and allow him to develop himself both academically and technically"
