In Jess’s own words, she explains what she has been learning over the last 18 months.

"Being a Bri-Stor Apprentice allows me to obtain my degree and develop in my career at the same time, which will give me a good head start into this industry. Using myself as an example of females in engineering roles I hope to breakdown the stereotype and inspire people into the endless possibilities of working in Engineering roles.“

A Proud day for Bri-Stor Group Apprentices

Apprenticeship Presentation 2

Well done to all of our Year 2 Apprentices who have once again worked very hard on their studies and as a result have passed their NVQ Level 2 in Performing Engineering Operations.

The young group gathered at Bri-Stor Group offices to be handed their certificates by Group Director Martin Smith, proudly watched by Apprentice Managers William Davies-Hill and Stephen Bowen who have mentored the group since they first arrived.

Martin commented afterwards: “They have all worked really hard so far, taking on everything we’ve asked of them and should be extremely proud of themselves today. For me it’s also a proud day as I know that the future of our business depends on young engineers like these and it makes me certain that we’re heading in the right direction”

We are looking forward to seeing the Apprentices put their new skills and knowledge in to practice on a day to day basis.

Local Students Visit Bri-Stor


Apprentice Visit HeaderBri-Stor Systems today welcomed a group of young students from a local High-school, who were keen to learn more about our Apprenticeship programme.

Apprentices in pole position


Our Apprentices have finished the 2nd Caterham Car Project.

Having prepared the workshop back in August ready for delivery of the Caterham Seven, the build is now complete after 10 weeks of hard work and determination.

Under guidance from Apprenticeship Manager William Davies-Hill, the Apprentices from Bri-Stor and Alpha Manufacturing have been following manufacturer instructions to build the self-assembly car.

A chance to build a quality sports car gives them the ideal opportunity to channel their energy to a constructive end, learn new skills and as a result they will be given the chance to go trackside and see the car on a local race track.

Well done to all the Apprentices who helped build the car from scratch; you did a great job.

The Caterham Wheels are Turning

Caterham Build Week 8

The Apprenticeships are continuing to make progress with the Caterham build which has seen it take to motion this week on its first test drive. The steering was on track, no visible leaks appeared and the gages on the dashboard all showed the right signals.

Work has been progressing on the interior of the car, which now looks close to finishing. The seats have been bolted in place, it is equipped with the centre console and the rear view mirror has been fitted.

The Apprentices have shown limitless enthusiasm and we are sure that their visit to a nearby race track in the coming weeks will be a day to remember.

The Caterham Build is Racing Forward


The Apprentices are over halfway through the Caterham build and it is going from strength to strength.

This week the indicators and the headlights will be assembled and fitted. The coolant and oil will be filled and ready for testing and if all this is achieved the team will start on the interior of the vehicle.

Well done to the team who have so far accomplished the build ahead of schedule.
