Apprentices are a key factor in succession planning at Alexander Battery Technologies.

In celebration of national apprentice week, we asked our in-house apprentices why they decided to apply for an apprenticeship. Just 5 months into their apprenticeship, we asked Ben, Ellie and Harvey how they’re finding it here at Alexander Battery Technologies. They highlight their experience with the apprenticeship program and how the envision their progress developing.

Why did you choose to do an apprenticeship instead of a university degree?

Harvey, who joined as a Production Engineer Apprentice, said it’s always been his goal to secure an apprenticeship. Harvey was advised by a career’s advisor that an apprenticeship is a good way of entering the profession. The ‘earning and learning’ aspect of an apprenticeship heavily influenced his decision to choose an apprenticeship. Harvey, 19, said an apprenticeship allows him the opportunity to start at the beginning of a company, and Alexander Battery Technologies is somewhere he can see himself at for a long time.
