Sam Rees – How I became an Apprentice.
I came to WLT in Aldershot after hearing they offer free courses for people my age (16-18), so I rang up and I got invited in for an interview. They explained to me the details of the course and told me what I can get out of it, if i put the effort in.
I have completed my level 1 (city and guilds) plumbing for 15 weeks at WLT. I found it very good and down to earth; the staff are all friendly and very helpful, and more importantly have a very wide knowledge of what they're teaching as they have been in the trade for many years which I think is great. After finishing my course in August (2011) I gained a work trial with a plumber, and after a few weeks I was in full time work with him. Since then I have been signed up to start my level 2 Apprenticeship at WLT. I was very happy to come back as it is a great training centre and I get along well with all the staff. I plan to complete my level 2 at WLT and then go on to further qualifications (Gas, Unvented etc.)
Michael Randall – How I became an Apprentice.
I am attending West London Training in Aldershot and studying for my Level 2 apprenticeship in plumbing after completing my City and Guilds Level 1 foundation in plumbing at West London Training.
I came to WLT with no qualifications at all. WLT gave me the opportunity to start again. They are all very nice people here and very welcoming. As long as you are polite to everyone then you will receive the same back.
I gained the opportunity of a trial with Quadron Services and I am now an apprentice plumber.
Matt Regan – How I became an Apprentice.
I came to WLT after visiting the training centre for an Open Day. I liked WLT better than all of the other colleges I had interviewed with.
I came to WLT for 15 weeks and passed my City and Guilds Level 1 foundation in plumbing. With the help of the team here I managed to gain an apprenticeship with AJ Interiors and I am enjoying it thoroughly.
Ian Barnes – How I became an Apprentice.
I came to an Open day at WLT to gain an insight to the training centre and found that I liked it more than the other colleges I had seen.
After completing my 15 weeks I then achieved my City and Guilds Level 1 foundation in plumbing which gave me the opportunity to trial with a local company, Pirbright Electrical. From this trial I was offered the opportunity of an apprenticeship which I took.
I am now back at WLT as an apprentice plumber studying for my City and Guilds Level 2 in plumbing installation.
Joe Parker – How I became an Apprentice.
When I came out of college after studying Art for a year I knew I wanted to be a plumber and do something practical but I didn't know how to go about it. After looking for an apprenticeship for a couple of months I found West London Training in Aldershot. I spoke to them on the phone and went to meet them. After meeting with West London Training I was offered a place on the City & Guilds Level 1 course. I really enjoyed the course and whilst studying I managed to gain a trial with B & K Boiler Services. Myself and a fellow student gained an apprenticeship with B & K Boilers and we could not have done it without the help of WLT.
Ashley Cullen – How I became an Apprentice.
Once I had finished school and got my GCSE's I knew that I wanted to try and make a career in plumbing but I was unsure what college I should go to? I was planning to go to Aldershot college, then I saw an advert in the paper for a free Level 1 plumbing course at West London Training. After I had visited the training centre I decided that was where I wanted to train. WLT offered me the chance of an interview and I got accepted into the training centre.
I completed my 15 week course and thoroughly enjoyed my time. I learnt a huge amount about plumbing and met some great people. I am glad that I chose to go to West London Training and I have returned there to complete my apprenticeship training.
