Still time to win the JTL van by taking on an apprentice.

There’s still time for employers looking to engage an apprentice in the electrical or heating and plumbing sectors to be entered into the prize draw to win a van as part of training provider JTL’s 25th anniversary celebrations – but time is running out! To qualify for a golden ticket, employers must sign up their apprentice by 31st July 2015.

It’s a quarter of a century since the ECA and what is today Unite the Union came together to form JTL, and this 25 year anniversary is being marked by a range of initiatives, including the chance for an employer to win the van.

JTL is keen to raise both the status of those working in building services engineering, and the appeal of a career in the electrical and heating and plumbing industries. It targets money and effort to ensure that more young people, across a range of academic abilities, see the merit of an apprenticeship in electrical installation and maintenance and heating, ventilating and plumbing. This includes working with careers advisors, and providing meaningful information to parents — illustrating the success stories of young people who have achieved great things through their apprenticeships.

JTL continues to grow and has opened impressive new training centres in the past eighteen months, including the JTL National Centre of Excellence in Birmingham and more recently a new centre that can train up to 100 learners in Norwich.

“I believe the company can look back on a very proud record of reliable achievement,” commented JTL Chairman, Ian Livsey. “JTL is a true service provider. Both its on-going existence and extremely bright future are worthy of celebration by all those who care deeply about the professionalism that good current and future electricians and heating engineers and plumbers apply on a daily basis.”

Every employer engaging a JTL apprentice in the period 1st August 2014 – 31st July 2015 will receive a 25th Anniversary entry ticket for a very special celebration prize draw. Only one entry ticket per company is being provided, so the competition cannot be dominated by larger businesses who take on more than one apprentice. The prize is an impressive silver Citroen Berlingo 1.6 HDi.
