A FEW WORDS FROM SARAH BLAYNEY, OFFICE MANAGER AT M BUFTON PLUMBING & HEATING SERVICES LTD ON THEIR EMPLOYER EXPERIENCE…
Our relationship with NPTC Group of Colleges this year has been such a beneficial one, not only as individuals but as a company as a whole. Before our first meeting back in May 2019, we had not used the college for training in years, yet since May there has been a complete turnaround.
We have an individual on a Plumbing Engineering apprenticeship, we couldn’t be happier with the feedback and the close links we are getting from his training. He will no doubt become a wonderful asset to the company and also gain skills and qualifications that will take him through life.
Both of our Electrical Engineers have successfully passed their 18th Edition which is invaluable to the company. With our consultant decreasing his hours to eventually retire, I had enquired about a Tendering course, you kindly recommended an intermediate level and advanced level, which both Tim and I successfully completed. This in itself could be the difference between us winning and losing large contracts, so as a company and taking on more staff, this is crucial. I have also attended Mental Health Awareness in the Workplace, which was very interesting and have put my name down for the next level.
The whole process and support we have had from NPTC Group of Colleges has given me the confidence to further my own education and I am currently enrolled on a Business Management course in order to fill the skills gap in the company which our consultant will leave when he retires.
We look forward to continuing our current working relationship and thank you for everything you have done for us.
