Jason Tregenza and Kyle Head have been learning their trade in the company’s pipe work department for the past three years.

Tregenza, a former taxi driver, said: “I’ve never been a skilled worker – until now. To think that the company has invested in my future makes me feel very proud. We’re both local lads with local jobs and I’m over the moon to be here at A&P.”

A&P Falmouth has invested heavily in training and apprenticeships since 1989 and 120 apprentices have been recruited in four main trade disciplines – marine engineering, electrical, steel fabrication/welding and pipe fabrication/fitting.

MD Peter Child said: “Empowering our workforce has always been a priority for us and we are proud of our training programmes.

“We strongly believe that investing in sustainable, highly skilled jobs is the future for our dockyard and would like to offer our congratulations and thanks to Jason and Kyle for all their hard work and commitment.”
