Continued growth at Epwin Window Systems
Epwin Window Systems is a mature PAA\VQ-SET centre with a year on year growth in the number of candidates covering a range of qualifications across a variety of sites within the organisation. The centre has offered vocational qualifications to its employees for over 15 years, starting with Polymer Operations qualifications but has now expanded to also covering other areas such as Laboratories and Learning and Development, and currently has over 30 candidates registered with PAA\VQ-SET.
Epwin Group is one of the UK’s largest manufacturers and suppliers of PVC windows, doors and fascia systems with some of the best known manufacturing and service names in the sector. Group businesses also produce high quality cladding, guttering, decking and prefabricated GRP building components.
Ron Mackenzie, Training Facilitator, commented “we have a tight knit team that allows us to cover a number of qualifications across the business. We are currently looking to recruit to add to this team; in particular at the business improvement / lean aspect. The team will continue to strive to continue our personal development within the NVQ process.”
