Five North Somerset apprentices have completed their qualifications at a company in Clevedon.

Adam Cottam from Yatton, Tom Holland from Clevedon, Alex Tanner and Luke Hudson from Nailsea and Eren Chetin from Worle, completed a two-year engineering apprenticeship at Brunel Engraving.

They received certificates earlier this month and the qualification is equivalent to five GCSE passes.

Philip Wright, Brunel’s production director, said all five have been employed by the firm full-time and will go on to complete a more advanced training course too.

He said: “Engraving is a highly skilled profession and our engravers are trained to the highest standards in the UK using the very latest computer controlled engraving machines, including laser and glass, as well as sublimation, chemical etching, anodic print and wide format digital print operations.

“The advantage of this type of apprenticeship, which is both technical and vocational, is that the trainees get to learn on the job whilst also benefitting from the support of their college mentor and assessor.
