Completing my degree whilst working full time in industry is beneficial as it allows me to develop my skills and knowledge further.  My confidence with my university work has increased due to the support and experience I’m exposed to at work.

I was delighted to hear first-hand the Edwin James vision on training. Throughout the company they take on apprentices in all areas and train them to a very high standard. The Edwin James Academy is an excellent idea and I applaud their forward-thinking and commitment to training.
