Plumbing Apprentices visit Vokèra Limited

In June the Advanced Plumbing Apprentices enjoyed a trip to Vokèra Limited.  Vokèra is a leading heating manufacturer, with a product portfolio that includes domestic gas boilers, light commercial gas boilers, unvented cylinders, water heaters, solar thermal collectors and air source heat pumps.

The trip was organised by John Kendrick, lecturer and course manager for the Advanced Plumbing Apprentices.  John has organised various enrichment opportunities for his advanced plumbing students with manufacturers to help them learn about the wide range of products that they will experience during their work roles.

During the visit the learners were able to hear from industry experts about the products in Vokèra’s range and also were also given the chance to work on these products.  All learners found this an excellent opportunity to enhance their studies and agreed that it was an excellent opportunity to gain first hand training from the manufacturer on use of fault finding and commission of their range of boilers.

Moulton College works with a range of manufacturers and suppliers to enhance the experience of the full time and apprentice students and really appreciated the support given by Vokèra Limited and hope that this will be the start of a longer term relationship so that further students can benefit from working on up to date heating appliances. 

Moulton College are keen to hear from other manufacturers and suppliers to build further relationships to enhance our student experience.  If you would like more information please contact Peter Thom (peter.thom@moulton.ac.uk) Employer Engagement Officer.
