To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week, we spoke to Morgan one of our talented apprentices to see why he chose the world of work over full time education. Morgan is part of our workshop team assembling windows and doors as well as carrying out glazing. Here’s what he had to say.
Why did you choose an apprenticeship over full time education?
I wanted to learn skills for life rather than sat in a college.
What does a typical day look like for you at ERW?
I am busy manufacturing windows and doors, using my bench joining skills. Every day there are new orders and products to make on the production line.
What do you enjoy most about your apprenticeship?
I like learning new skills and having good banter with the lads in the workshop.
What do you hope to achieve once you have completed your apprenticeship?
I really want to have a career at ERW and continue to work with the lads here. I really enjoy it!
What advice would you give the other school leavers who might be thinking about an apprenticeship?
Definitely try to get an apprenticeship, you won’t regret it!
All staff I met were very professional from office to the 4 installers not forgetting the man who did the survey. I have had lots of compliments from friends and family. Thank you for the attention to detail and the efficiency of the work carried out.
Mrs B, Norton, Stockton on Tees
Thank you so much for the windows and front door. They have exceeded my expectations! I was very happy with the two fitters that came, they were very professional, polite and left our house immaculate. I would definitely recommend your firm to a friend and family.
Mr & Mrs M, Eston, Middlesbrough
The standard of quality of the work done is so good that I can only use one word to crown it – PERFECT! My wife and I hope you will continue to provide such an exemplary piece of work which will no doubt earn you more customers. We are happy to recommend you to everyone we know.
Dr S, Darlington
We just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that we are very happy with both our secondary glazing and the new double glazing that has very recently been fitted by ERW Joinery Ltd in our home. Despite having some reservations about the aesthetics and impact it would have on the ‘period’ of the house, we both think the windows look great. In addition to this we have already noticed that the house feels much warmer and also retains the heat for longer. I thought that the advice you gave us was excellent & the attention to detail from yourself and your workforce was so important in helping us decide about the best products. Could you also please pass on our thanks to the workforce who were professional, hardworking and above all craftsmen. We will certainly be happy to recommend your company to any of our friends who may be considering similar work.
Ms R, Darlington
