Andrew Cooke Apprenticeship

Focus on apprenticeships at EOGB

EOGB has announced the appointment of Andrew Cooke who will undertake a three-year apprenticeship with the company.

16-year-old Andrew will start his apprenticeship by completing a NVQ Level 2 in Technical Services, which will be built around day to day activities such as design, CAD and manufacturing processes. Alongside this, he will learn combustion theory and the basics of oil/gas domestic and commercial heating.

His next step will be to move on to NVQ Level 3 and complete his required oil and gas qualifications.

Paul Barritt, Managing Director at EOGB, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Andrew to EOGB on an apprenticeship programme. Unfortunately, training for new entrants in the heating industry has gone into decline over the past decade, so we’re pleased to be doing our bit to support the next generation of skilled engineers.”

Commenting on his appointment, Andrew said: “I’m really excited to begin an apprenticeship at EOGB. The team are extremely knowledgeable and experienced and I know that training here will provide a very strong foundation for my future career in the industry.”

Andrew will be the third apprentice to train at EOGB, following in the footsteps of Technical & Training Support Engineer Reece Summerfield and Trainee Technical Engineer Harry Holmes.

EOGB are one of the UK’s leading manufacturers and distributors of oil, gas and dual fuel burners for domestic, commercial and industrial applications.
