Students Land Engineering Jobs At Specialist Testing Company

By published 10 February, 2014 No Comments


Two students from Redcar & Cleveland College are wired for success after landing trainee engineering jobs at a leading test equipment centre.

Tshering Lama and James Sutherland were recommended to testing and measurement company Inlec by one of their tutors on the college course.

They are both studying an HNC in Instrumentation and Control, which is part of the engineering department in the college’s Higher Education Centre.

Dedicated and enthusiastic, their commitment to their studies stood out to tutor Brian Lewis, so he did not hesitate when asked if the college had any suitable candidates for junior positions.

Rolf McCullagh, Managing Director at Inlec, which is a test equipment hire and calibration centre in Stokesley, said both Tshering and James were doing well.

“I was told that they were both bright and hard working and they have certainly proved that since coming here,” said Rolf.

“We work in a highly-specialised field, hiring and calibrating industrial test equipment, so we will be building on the skills Tshering and James already have and developing them in the specific ways in which we work.

“It’s excellent to bring new, young people in to work alongside our existing employees. They get great training and experience working with the team, as well as support with their studies, and we get to enjoy their fresh approach and enthusiasm.

“There are so many opportunities out there for qualified engineers. This is just the beginning for them.”

James, 19, from Marton in Middlesbrough, a former pupil of Nunthorpe School, said he felt fortunate. He completed the year-long Access to Higher Education course at the college, which enabled him to then move onto the HNC.

“I only started on the HNC course three months ago, so am really pleased to have found a job already,” said James.

“It’s the perfect job for me because I love fixing things, finding faults with equipment and putting them right. I’ve already learned a lot. It’s great to put the theory from college into practice.”

Tshering, 20, from Redcar, formerly of Redcar Academy, said: “I love engineering and am really enjoying it at Inlec. It’s a very practical, hands-on job, so is perfect for me. It’s a career I can really build on.”

Both Tshering and James work four days a week at Inlec and study at Redcar & Cleveland College one day a week.

Tutor Brian Lewis said: “It’s great to see young men who are dedicated and who have a great work ethic doing well and making their mark in the industry.

“Engineering is a fabulous profession to be in – there are so many different specialisms with endless opportunities – I know they will do extremely well.”
