Essar’s Stanlow refinery in Ellesmere Port has been a PAA\VQ-SET Approved Centre for over 20 years offering a range of Engineering and Maintenance qualifications. The centre is also approved to offer the Assessor and IQA qualifications and has developed an internal quality assurance team who work with their PAA\VQ-SET External Verifier, David Jenkins, to ensure high standards are maintained and Assessors are supported.
Margaret Cheshire, Centre Co-ordinator at Essar said: “We are proud of the training and support that we provide to Apprentices at Stanlow. There is a team of experienced Maintenance Technicians and Operators able to provide on the job training that is supported by a team of accredited in-house Assessors. This works very well as the Assessors understand the national standards as well as being competent and experienced in Essar work processes and standards.”
