15 Kingfield employees have now completed the level 3 NVQ Electrical and Electronics Engineering qualification whilst also qualifying as certified IPC Specialists in the Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies, they received their certificates along with a huge round of applause from the rest of the Kingfield staff.
Following efforts to increase staff training by supporting over 40 Kingfield employees through both NVQ and IPC training, a presentation was held in order to show our recognition and pride in our employee’s achievements. Joining the Kingfield team where representatives from The Chamber of Commerce, Learning Skills Council, Train to Gain, West Nottinghamshire College and ETS who all individually helped the employees to achieve their goals. Photographers helped to capture the moment as employees received their certificates and a gift from Kingfield’s Managing Director, Nick Taylor.
Alan Oldale, General manager at Kingfield commented, “I am personally very proud to see the first group of employees achieve their goals as I have worked very closely with our staff and the assessors from West Nottinghamshire College. Kingfield has supported our employees during the training phase, and I believe that this qualification gives our staff an increased sense of self achievement and pride in their own work. One of our prime objectives is to increase employee ownership of their respective activities and hopefully promote a greater sense of achievement. These qualifications allow them a greater understanding of the standards we desire, and helps give them the tools they need to ensure the production of continued defect free product”. The remaining individuals will have finished the course during the coming months, and the level 3 NVQ qualification paves the way for further training activities in 2009.
