MP Awards offer their congratulations to Aidan Jeffreys of Hills Quarry Products who has been awarded the UK’s first Level 2 Mineral Processing Mobile and Static Plant Operator Apprenticeship

MP Awards carried out the End Point Assessment (EPA) for Aidan in January 2019.

“I’ve really enjoyed my apprenticeship,” said Aidan. “At first it was a little daunting but once I learnt the processes, the aggregate products, and how to use the equipment the training became easier.”

“Everyone has been helpful, patient and friendly throughout my apprenticeship and support from my colleagues on site helped me to progress quickly and complete the apprenticeship in only 15 months.”

General Manager of MP Awards Roseanne Hayward commented on the news, “we are absolutely delighted for Aidan and we are very pleased to have commenced delivering end-point assessments”.

Aidan is now a fully qualified Mobile Plant Operative and will continue to work at Hills’ Shorncote Quarry near Cirencester where he undertook his training.

The apprenticeship programme was delivered by Mentor Training Solutions to meet the requirements of the apprenticeship standard and assessment plan developed by a trailblazer group of industry employers including Hills Quarry Products and MPQC’s standard-setting organisation MP Futures.
