Callum McCarthy, 21, started his journey into a Modern Apprenticeship with Robbie Fluid Engineering straight from school at the age of 16. He also attended West Lothian College one day per week to continue to improve his skills and understanding, and also to give him the opportunity to share his experiences with other apprentices in similar fields.
Callum successfully completed his apprenticeship in March 2017 and works for Robbie Fluid Engineering to further continue his development. As well as assisting customers within our business, Callum is also part of the on-call engineer team available 24/7/365 to attend customer sites. He is heavily involved in the training and development of our current young apprentice.
Managing Director, Mark Robbie, recognizes the value of on-the-job training. He says “Callum has developed well, in particular over the past 24 months. He should have a good sense of achievement for what he has done while in training.”
