Oltco resin flooring specialists are proud supporters and participants of the apprenticeship scheme.
We are passionate about employing a local Cornish workforce and the apprenticeship scheme has allowed us to do just that. This scheme allows us to train up apprentices the Oltco way. We offer them hands on experience of installing and laying resin floors, resin driveways and non-slip flooring as well as the official training they receive from their college course. We also give them that all-important experience of being in a work environment.
We are a family run business based in Cornwall and we encourage the apprentices to become part of the Oltco family.
We have already taken on some of the apprentice’s full time after they had finished their apprenticeship.
Our Directors John Pearce and Tom Stringer wanted to complete the course themselves as they believe they should do everything that is expected of them.
John Pearce explains, “ It was strange to be in a class room environment but at the same time it was so interesting to see what the apprentices are looking for and what makes them motivated”
Tom adds, “ The key to our growth is set right from the beginning it is important that our team start with no bad habits and learn in a comfortable environment where they can thrive and do it the right way”
John explains further “ We want to promote from within and not outsource. For us, we can give them the skills. The important questions we need to find out are: Is this the right person for the job and our team? Do they have strong morals? Can they work as part of a team?”
Once they have completed their apprenticeship they are fully trained and experienced working with resin flooring systems, which include commercial kitchen floors, floor coatings and resin driveways and patios.
Oltco are based in Cornwall but work in Devon, Somerset and further afield, covering the whole of the U.K.
