Kevin Drogan – From Apprentice to Team Leader

Pittards Apprentice Kevin Drogan has graced Twitter this week as part of a social media campaign designed to promote apprenticeships as an option for both young people who are starting out in the world of work and for those embarking on a complete change in career. Kevin joined the Pittards team in November 2013 and has since progressed to Cutting Room Team Leader after achieving an NVQ Level 2 and a technical certificate in finished leather goods. Kevin said: “My apprenticeship has taught me a lot of new skills and I’m hoping to work my way up through the company to go as far as I can.” He continues: “With an apprenticeship you have nothing to lose but everything to gain. It’s a great way to learn new skills and gain experience while getting paid.
