WHO WE ARE
My name is Tom and I am proud to have lived on the Fylde Coast my whole life. When I was 18, I embarked on an Advanced Apprenticeship in Manufacturing Engineering at a plastics company in Blackpool. I look back very fondly on those 4 years as an apprentice and am incredibly grateful for the learning opportunities, experiences and skills that it offered.
During the last 2 years, I have been heavily involved in the creation of an apprenticeship scheme for a large chemical company in Thornton-Cleveleys. During this time, I realised little attention is currently given to showcasing the benefits of undertaking a manufacturing apprenticeship.
I have created the Fylde Coast Apprenticeship Network in order to connect the gaps between individuals, schools, colleges and businesses. I hope that via this central hub for manufacturing apprenticeships on the Fylde Coast, more people can find and benefit from local opportunities available.
