Meet the Apprenticeship Team

With an ANS apprenticeship you get to work and study in one location whilst receiving tons of support from not only your line manager, but our dedicated, Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ rated team.

Head of Apprenticeships

Thomas Robinson

Tom looks after all our apprentices programs, ensuring apprentices are getting the best experience from the team to help them succeed and gain a career they love!

“Over the last four years I have had the opportunity to see nearly 100 apprentices develop and grow into some of the best engineers in the business. The opportunities we give apprentices is second to none and we’re constantly working on improvements to make our offering bigger and better.”

Apprenticeship IT Trainer

Paul Hannaford

With 2o years experience in the industry, Paul focuses on delivering and guiding apprentices though their technical learning.

“It’s great working with Apprentices as it’s a two-way experience, whilst I am training them, they are often teaching me about their roles and the knowledge gained on the job, we all learn together.”

Apprenticeship Support Manager

Megan Bradshaw

Bridging the gap between job role and academic work, Megan works closely with team leaders and their apprentices to ensure they are receiving consistent support. By providing regular coaching in both areas, Megan helps apprentices develop and grow to secure permanent roles within ANS!

“I love to see the whole apprenticeship journey, from first starting out, sometimes without any technical knowledge, to excitedly showing me a technical project they have worked on. I get to see people find their passion in their chosen teams, and watch the amazing progression and impact they have on the business. It’s great to see the transformation from day 1 to a few years down the line when they are working in team leader and engineer positions.”
