News: RCAT apprenticeship combines energy and Skill


Rotherham College of Arts and Technology (RCAT) has awarded Liam Skill the latest Apprentice of the Month accolade for his hard work on his Intermediate Mechanical Engineering Apprenticeship at Energy Alloys in Rotherham.

Energy Alloys is an American oil field metals business with its UK headquarters in Rotherham. it has offices at Catcliffe and a manufacturing and warehouse facility at Canklow. The site processes and holds long products for the energy, stainless and engineering markets.

During his apprenticeship, Liam worked in the manual turning department and the deep hole boring department, learning specialised skills. He also produced a production plan for a selection of piece that will be manufactured in the coming year. The plan included a great deal of detail, taking into account the health and safety involved in production.

Richard Rhodes, operations manager for Energy Alloys, said: "During his time in the turning cell he has proven that he has listened and learned by producing a piece of work which, in my opinion is first class for someone so new to engineering.

"I believe that by awarding him the apprentice of the month it will give a young man the encouragement to be a very successful player in this difficult industry."

Liam has been an apprentice at the global provider since December 2012 and has excelled in his training thanks to the team.

Liam said: "My apprenticeship has given me the opportunity to push myself and conquer new challenges. The support available through the College and from the team is great and I really enjoy coming to work each day."

The college was recently given a rating of "Good" by Ofsted inspectors with two of its departments, Construction and Visual and Performing Arts, earned the top rating of "Outstanding."
