Joe Trodd – apprentice of the month!

Q3 is dedicated to developing and expanding its apprenticeship programme because the benefits are self-evident when you hear of success stories like our very own Joe Trodd. Apprenticeships provide us with the workforce and managers of the future, equipping individuals across all disciplines with the skills to develop their careers and futureproof the evolution of the organisation.

So, congratulations then to Joe Trodd, who has just been awarded “Apprentice of the Month” by Q3’s training provider.

Joe is an apprentice engineer working on our Salesforce contract and dedicates one day a week, pursuing the academic aspects of his Level 3 building services maintenance qualification.

He has been making fantastic progress as his tutor, Dave Moore, of Choice Training Ltd explains, “Joe has been doing well throughout his entire time on the course. He always tries hard and puts in 110% effort into everything he does. He is very thorough with his work and likes to understand everything that he is doing.

“Joe has handed in two job reports for his onsite evidence folder so far, and they are two of the best reports we have ever seen. Joe is also one of the politest students I have worked with, and I love the attitude he has towards his education.”

His manager, Fabio Goncalves echoes these compliments. “We are delighted that Joe has been awarded ‘Apprentice of the Month’. Throughout his apprenticeship, Joe has shown outstanding dedication and skill, plus a proactive attitude to applying everything he has learned from his course to numerous projects and onsite work. His contributions have included assisting with work on Plate Heat Exchangers (PHEs), Mechanical Low-Temperature Hot Water systems (LTHWs), and tap installs, among many other tasks, showcasing his versatility and commitment.

“Joe is constantly expanding his knowledge of mechanical systems through diligent research. His eagerness to learn is evident in the way he consistently asks questions and seeks guidance from the lead engineer. Joe also takes full advantage of opportunities to shadow and learn from specialist contractors when they are onsite.

“Joe, your dedication, curiosity, and proactive attitude truly distinguish you. Congratulations once again from all the team on this well-deserved recognition!”

Joe appreciates the way the college learning dovetails with the activities he is involved with on the day-job. “My experience working with steel pipework in the college workshop helped me greatly when we had to replace a plate heat exchanger on site. Similarly, practicing with compression fittings and building copper frames gave me confidence to plumb in an electric water heater after diagnosing and repairing faults with the appliance.”

Well-done Joe!
