Silver Lining employee wins Trainee of the Year
They say every cloud has a silver lining and that's certainly true for Damien Vanderhaegen. The 21 year old from Gosport (originally from South Africa) has just been awarded the title of Trainee of the Year by Fareham College, and will stay on full-time with Silver Lining from the end of June.
After expressing an interest in IT, we arranged a traineeship for Damien through Fareham College who enrolled him on courses alongside his placement with us to improve his employability and functional skills.
Damien impressed us so much during his three-month probationary period that he will be staying on with us as a first line engineer. Damien says, "Fareham College and Silver Lining gave me an opportunity I'll never forget. My colleagues are great, and I really enjoy the work I do." We are hoping that Damien progresses within the company and takes on more and more challenging workloads.
Allan Packer, Managing Director at Silver Lining says "Damien is a real asset to the team. Several trainees have joined us over the past year, and we believe they are a real investment. A traineeship is a real job with training, following a structured programme that leads to a recognised qualification."
It’s been such a great success that we will be looking to employ additional trainees later in the year.
