Signs Express (Peterborough) are proud to announce the recruitment of Kai Chilvers, 17, who becomes their Signage Technician Apprentice.

Kai, who lives in Hampton Hargate, has recently started his 2-year apprenticeship with the team, supported by Walsall College of Birmingham.

The apprenticeship will see Kai be one of only a limited number of people gain the Level 3 Sign Technician qualification. There are few official qualifications within the signage industry, meaning that any support provided by companies is essential.

Michael Tame, Owner of Signs Express (Peterborough) said:

“We are delighted to have Kai join us. We really believe it’s time for companies to step up and start investing in the proper training of young people, not only for their benefit but for the benefit of our industry too.”

Kai Chilvers said:

“I’m really grateful for this opportunity and to begin developing my skills in a real working environment. There aren’t many people who take on this qualification so I’m proud to be one of only a few leading the way for the industry.”
