Gestamp Apprentices Go Permanent


Gestamp Apprentices Go Permanent

Apprentices gain permanent contracts with Gestamp

In the middle of 2022, we were approached by our partner Gestamp Tallent to help address a skills shortage within the business. Gestamp had their own skill shortage issue in the form of Welding staff, likewise with many businesses all over the country.

The following months saw us work together to develop a bespoke apprenticeship programme with the primary focus of delivering skilled manufacturing staff with an emphasis on Welding in order to address and fulfil the skill shortage. The apprentices were enrolled on a Lean Manufacturing Operative Level 2 qualification which was co-delivered by GEM Partnership and Gestamp’s own trainers who embedded key delivery specific to welding and robot recovery.

We are now excited to share the news that thirteen apprentices from our first cohort have successfully passed there qualification and gained a permanent contract through their hard work, commitment and GEM’s collaborative partnership with Gestamp.

We’d like to offer our congratulations to: Connor O’Neil, Dominic Melaney, Jack Hannant, Kane Robson, Charles Bell, Ben McMenamin, Jack Collier, Raheem Mohammed, Nathan Williams, Oliver Butterfield, Ethan Beadle, Tayib Uddin and Liam Cowell (pictured below).
