Our Apprentice 2 – You’re Also Hired

Continuing with the success of our Apprentices, we would like to share the success of Chris who has just completed his GQA Level3 NVQ Diploma in Machine Printing, finishing his apprenticeship ahead of plan due to his hard work and determination to succeed.

Chris joined us back in April 2018 as a Print Apprentice and has become an integral part of our print production team. Starting his learning journey as part of the conventional print team, Chris then progressed to our growing digicon finishing team where we produce foil, embossing, screen, spot PMS colours, decorative varnishes and peel and read constructions. 

Chris’s knowledge will continue to develop and grow following the completion of his apprenticeship and he is very much looking forward to the next challenges in his career at Berkshire Labels.

Chris is pictured above with our Managing Director Paul Roscoe in our Flexo Press area.

Here’s what Chris’ mentor (from the British Printing Industries Foundation www.britishprint.com) had to say about his time coaching Chris through his apprenticeship;

“It has been a pleasure working with Chris on his apprenticeship – seeing him develop his skills and knowledge in printing and also to see his confidence build has been a privilege. With the added challenges of distanced learning during the Covid-19 pandemic Chris continued working on the knowledge requirements of the apprenticeship.  He is a credit to both Berkshire Labels and himself”
