Apprenticeships - Jamie Colledge
Jamie Colledge, former Electrical Installation Apprentice, is now our head Electrical Design Engineer, after a change in his career path. He is now studying a higher apprenticeship in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Teesside University, and is constantly evolving his skills.
Working for Intelect has helped me progress on both social and professional levels. I joined Intelect from school through a training centre onto an advanced apprenticeship, I was always keen to be involved and learn but I worried I wouldn't be able to advance my career. After my apprenticeship I had meetings with the company directors and they happily agreed to put me through additional training to become the company's first apprentice trained NICEIC Qualified Supervisor. I successfully held the position for 6 years and felt I had become complacent with the job role. I needed to push myself further technically and again, I approached the directors for a chance to promote myself to an electrical design engineer. This was welcomed by the company directors and I had the opportunity to further my career by enrolling onto a Higher National Certificate in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. I have since graduated from the HNC with a Distinction grade and have been accepted onto the second year of a degree apprenticeship for the Bachelor's in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. On successful completion of my degree apprenticeship I will become the Intelect’s first 'grass roots' professionally registered electrical engineer with the IET as an incorporated engineer (IEng). My future plans are to become a professionally chartered electrical engineer and I believe Intelect would support me wholly.
