The MP met with four apprentices in

Budding engineers at a Beckenham business have been praised by MP Bob Stewart.

Meeting with four apprentices at European Springs & Pressings, Mr Stewart awarded the young workers with their Performing Engineering Operations certificate, which forms part of their training.

After the meeting, the Tory MP said: ““Manufacturing accounts for nearly a tenth of the UK’s economy and employs 2.6 million people. European Springs and Pressings is a major contributor to this sector and their apprenticeship schemes wonderfully encourage, enthuse and reward so many with opportunities to further their careers in engineering. I am delighted to have been asked to honour these apprentices with their PEO certificates and look forward to seeing them all at the Houses of Parliament on a special VIP tour as a small measure of my gratitude for all their hard work.”

Stuart McSheehy, managing director of European Springs & Pressings concludes: “Apprenticeships are key to securing next generation engineers and engineering is key to the UK’s GVA. We’re really proud to be inspiring tomorrow’s engineers with valuable on-site training in real life working conditions, preparing them for real jobs in manufacturing.

“We’re most grateful to Bob for all his support, for recognising what the apprentices have achieved so far and are all looking forward to seeing Bob in his place of work.”

With interviews for new apprentices underway this week, young workers are expected to set off to Westminster next month.
