Meet the Team – Lee Calver

We sat down with Lee Calver, Engineering Instructor/Assessor, to find out more about his role. 

How long have you been at In-Comm Training?  
It’s approaching two years now, however I have been involved with In-Comm since leaving the RAF on practical training courses and management courses.

What is your role?
Engineering Instructor/Assessor.

What is the best thing about your job?
Seeing the development of the learners and watching their skills grow.

If you had to do one apprenticeship with In-Comm, which one would you choose and why?
Engineering Technician as the units covered give essential skills that are used in all aspects of business and engineering, ranging from writing risk assessments to producing your own tool kit.

What’s been your proudest moment at In-Comm Training?
When my first cohort completed the level 2, proving the development of their skills.

What are your hobbies and interests outside of work?
I am a FA licensed football coach, coaching 2 teams u14. I also enjoy rectification of anything mechanical from pedal cycles to making a classic Ford Popular car from a Suzuki 4×4 – very rare now.

What inspires you?
Whilst in the RAF as a junior technician, a more experienced aircraft engineer advised me to conquer the hardest task and thus they become easy tasks (do not avoid the hardest task). I took this guidance to heart and often try to pass this information onto learners and other people alike, meet the challenge head on and succeed.

What advice would you give to people thinking about embarking on an apprenticeship?
I would encourage this course of action, as the apprenticeship gives many practical skills aligned with a broad knowledge base, this combined with the experience of a work environment is a key to success going forward. Of course the learner also gets paid which is always a positive!
