Come and see us at the RHS Malvern Spring Festival at the Three Counties Showground from the 7th – 10th May, opposite the Country Living Pavilion.
We had some visitors to the workshop on Friday 21st. South Worcestershire College asked if one of their students could shadow “our” Alice as this girl is interested in doing design and CAD drawing. The Student was also called Alice! “Our” Alice showed her what she did in the workshop and then took her out to visit the kitchen of one of our delighted clients and also to see working progress on our large building project. Everyone enjoyed the visit.
In the last few months we have been exploring the latest design software aimed at managing the design of higher – end bespoke projects. As a result we have invested in some exciting new CAD design software. Alice is currently receiving regular tuition from the software company which will enable us to present clients with good quality 3 D images as well as advancing her apprenticeship. This will enable us to create our designs faster and assist clients to see their designs and drawings brought to life. It is much easier to understand a project if you can see a 3 dimensional image. All elevations and perspectives are instantly available and changes to the design can be executed rapidly. It is also possible to generate colour renderings with specific textures, finishes and accessories.
South Worcestershire college has recently started to produce an Employer newsletter outlining initiatives which may be of interest to local businesses and advertising the apprenticeship subjects they can offer. The second newsletter includes an article about an apprenticeship success story whereby our member of staff, Alice had been awarded Apprentice of the Year. Alice is being supported by Malvern Hills Furniture and the college to progress to an Advanced Apprenticeship. Apprenticeships are being showcased nationally as an alternative to a university education and it has been exciting as a small business to be at the forefront of such an initiative.
STOP PRESS – And the Apprentice of 2013 is…. Alice Wigley!
Unfortunately this isn’t BBC One’s ‘The Apprentice’ and she won’t be Lord Alan Sugar’s new business partner but Alice was given the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ award at the South Worcestershire’s College award ceremony last week. We are absolutely delighted that her skills have been recognised in this way. Her citation written by her tutor stated that ”Alice is a creative business administration apprentice whose design skills are integral to the success of Malvern Hills Furniture. Alice’s skills and creative design work using programmes such as Photoshop, Scribus and AutoCAD have been exemplary. Her design work has been praised and transformed into some amazing pieces which customers have loved. Her job role also has responsibility, challenge, creation and the opportunity to transfer customer ideas into tangible products.” As a firm we are proud to be promoting an Apprenticeship and congratulate Alice on her success which has been of mutual benefit.
