Elliott Lindsay has been awarded the NVQ6, having been one of the first candidates on the pilot scheme which launched in 2014.
Having left school with few qualifications, Elliott joined Reprotec 15 years ago as a general labourer. He was able to benefit from the time and money the company put into its workforce; with regular personal development meetings, training plans, in-house supervised and other training. Elliott was amongst the first 19 nationally to achieve the newly established NVQ2 in resin flooring qualification in 2008. This gave him the encouragement to retake his Maths and English exams as well as completing the SMSTS and a business outward bound management training course, which then enabled Elliott to take the next step and achieve his NVQ3 Supervisory Management qualification.
The high point for him has been to gain his NVQ6 in specialist contracting operations which is a degree level course. Elliot said: “This is the best achievement of my career to date, and my challenge now is to put all that I have learnt into practice. It is thanks to John Holmes, our MD and the Reprotec team that I have got where I am today. They see the value of investing in training to help their staff achieve and develop as well as for the good of the company.”
John Holmes, Reprotec’s MD, added: “Elliott’s endeavour to achieve NVQ Level 6, even though it was hard work and quite testing at times, is a testament to his attitude and dedication to his profession. We are so proud of Elliott and no doubt he can achieve even more in the future.”
