Luceco Group supporting young talent through apprenticeships

Dan Heyes has found success and growth through an apprenticeship with the Luceco Group.


He had been looking for an opportunity to start a creative career in design engineering through an apprenticeship. Through his apprenticeship at Luceco, Dan gained the qualifications and experience needed to kickstart his design engineering career.


Whilst his course at Shrewsbury College covered maths, electrical engineering, project and design engineering (CAD and Solidworks), pneumatic/hydraulics, machinery, welding, and computed aided manufacturing (CAM), his apprenticeship meant he was able to try different engineering roles, gain additional qualifications, alongside the qualification he needed to become a design engineer.


Throughout his trainee years, Dan benefitted from the training and support of Luceco managers and seniors. After qualifying, the company offered him an additional short course that was more specified for his line of work.


Since qualifying for his apprenticeship, Dan has gone from lighting design trainee via junior lighting design engineer to recently becoming a lighting design engineer.


Dan says, ‘I feel like I have developed a lot as a person since being at Luceco, I feel more professional in the way I act, as well as more confident with my abilities in social situations, compared to when I first joined.


‘I would certainly recommend apprenticeships to other young people thinking about their future careers.’


Lee Kinsey, Lighting Design Manager at Luceco Group, says, ‘We were delighted to support Dan in his endeavours and equip him with the skills and qualifications needed to develop his career. Supporting and nurturing young talent is a company priority as we look forward to the future.’
