A day in the life of an apprentice at Pendennis Shipyard

Five of Pendennis’ apprentices will give a unique insight into a day’s work at Pendennis Shipyard during National Apprenticeship Week. Each apprentice will be followed by a photographer to give an idea of day-to-day work as an apprentice in the engineering, electrical, fabrication, joinery and paint departments. The apprentices will explain the tasks at hand and their life as students and tradesmen in a Facebook diary found on the Pendennis Facebook page (www.facebook.com/PendennisShipyardLtd). It will be a unique opportunity to discover how knowledge and skill is handed over by experienced tradesmen to the younger generations.
