National Coal Mining Museum Welcomes Two Electrical Apprentices

The National Coal Mining Museum for England have recently appointed their first Electrical Apprentices. Specialising in mining electrical engineering, their developing skills will keep mining heritage alive in the Museum.

Luke and Stanley joined the Museum in September and have already got stuck in, demonstrating great enthusiasm for their chosen craft and its long history.

Splitting their time between studying at Wakefield College and the Museum, both Apprentices are working towards earning a NVQ Level 2 in Electrical Engineering and completing the Electrical Technician (Underground) competence portfolio (National Occupational Standards). They will be qualified Electricians and Mine Guides upon completion of their apprenticeships.

Working closely with Engineers and other specialists at the Museum, both Luke and Stanley will be able to get hands on with original mining equipment, learn about the health and safety protocols and legislation, and much more.

Shaun McLoughlin, Mine Director, said: 

“We are thrilled to have appointed two Electrical apprentices here at the Museum. They truly are the future of the Museum and vital for keeping mining heritage alive for generations to come. They have thrown themselves into the deep end with great enthusiasm. We look forward to supporting them and seeing what they achieve over the coming years.”
