DCET Celebrates 750th Apprentice.....


DCET Training, part of the Focus Training Group, are celebrating recruiting our 750th Apprentice!
As you know we are a specialist provider of electrical training in Devon and Cornwall with centres in Redruth, Exeter and our new centres opening in Plymouth and Torbay last year.
Since our establishment in 1995 we have been the leading provider in the region for the training of Electrical Apprentices and are delighted this year to have recruited our 750th Apprentice, Fraser Hill from ECS (South West) Ltd. ECS one of Devon's leading electrical contractors and a great supporter of Apprenticeships signed up Fraser earlier this month. Steve Smith, Managing Director, said, 'We are delighted to welcome Fraser on board, our twelfth Apprentice over the years - the customers love their attention to detail and the quality of their work'.

750th Apprentice

DCET has built itself on its reputation for quality and its willingness to stay at the forefront of training with investment in its centres, as well as top class supervision of Apprentices in their workplace. Recent years have seen new centres in both Cornwall and Exeter, and with its merger with Focus Training in Plymouth has now added this centre to its list of top quality facilities.
Bernard Collins, DCET's Curriculum Manager said, 'We are delighted to have reached the 750 mark, it is a real milestone. A mark of our quality is the number of employers that we originally trained as Apprentices some years ago are now asking us to recruit Apprentices for them knowing that everything will be taken care of from recruitment to final qualification with no hitches. We would like to congratulate Fraser on being our 750th Apprentice and wish him luck with his training. We are sure with the full support of ECS (South West) Ltd as his employer he will do well'.
Peter Oldham, a member of the board of Focus/DCET added, 'We continue to invest in the future of young people in Devon & Cornwall and after taking on our Plymouth Centre last year we have spent the summer giving it a complete face lift, including the addition of a totally new Practical Training Area, which means we can now offer electrical employers in Plymouth and East Cornwall the same level of service that we offer in our other two centres without them having to travel'.
The coming together of DCET and Focus also means that the joint company can now offer employers a much wider range of training from Administration and IT right through to Level 5 management courses. Additionally with the ESF Funding at its disposal it can also offer subsidised electrical and other short courses that employers need without them having to travel out of the regions.

CSCS Changes Update
The Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) has made changes for obtaining a Green Card (Labourer Card). These new requirements were introduced from July 2014 and state that along with the CITB Health, Safety & Environment (HS&E) Test, a qualification (or alternative) must be achieved in order to apply for the Green Card. There are two available routes for obtaining the Green Card:


DCET Training are delivering the Level 1 Award in Health & Safety in a Construction Environment option. We are running it as a five day course, the first of which is underway this week at our Plymouth Training Centre. The advantage of undertaking this route means that you end up with a life long qualification rather than having to renew your training every five years. There will be an additional course cost, price to be confirmed, alongside the registration fee and Health & Safety Test . For any further information please give us a ring on 01392 829100...and spread the word to your building mates!

Exciting New Arb Training
DCET are expanding yet again by establishing a new training venture in early 2015. We will be training people to become Tree Surgeons and work round power lines and the like. The training will be offered as Vocational and Apprenticeship training. More detailed information will follow in the next edition of our Newsletter - in the meantime call us on 01392 829100 to register your interest.

Following the success of our first Traineeship programme over the summer we will be running another starting in January 2015 at our Exeter Training Centre. This will lead in to our Security Systems Apprenticeship beginning in March. Sign up now!
