CATCH Skills have recently delivered a bespoke Confined Space Emergency Response course for Prax!

The main focus was to create real life scenarios of a rescue using a live casualty. This was to practise initiating a rescue, the responsibilities of a team leader/ member and ensuring clear communication.

We included additional elements of first aid including, emergency resuscitation, casualty handling and oxygen administration.

Lee Christie, Refinery Fire and Safety Leader said “The Confined Space Emergency Rescue Training was really good, the scenarios were realistic and it was really beneficial have live casualty rescues, the facility provided us with the challenges we needed to test our skills and experience.”

Holly Goodwin, CATCH Skills Account Manager added “It has been great supporting Prax with their Confined Space Emergency Rescue Training package. Tailoring the course to meet their site requirements ensures the delegates have a greater understanding and relatable experience within the scenarios. Utilising our purpose built Confined Space Rig for training means we can create real life scenarios, without the real industry risks. This provides individuals with the opportunity to practice and build confidence within a contained environment, should they ever need to perform these for real. In addition to the practical elements, we implemented exactly the same procedures they would follow at their site, ensuring our trainers can support the individuals every step of the way.”

CATCH Skills ran a bespoke 1- Day Emergency Response training course for the employees at YARA. Using their procedures, we created a programme to incorporate important roles the employees may face within their jobs.

Martin Jones, HESQ Manager and Process Safety Coordinator said, “Fantastic course, very relevant and extremely well planned – the teams were free from site distractions and able to fully concentrate on the tasks in hand – mistakes were made and learning in a safe and open environment meant we can build people up – wonderful course”

The teams took part in several scenarios around the National Centre for Process Manufacturing (NCPM) including a forklift collision which required a first aid exercise to traumatic leg injuries and a leaking diesel tanker with 4000 litres potentially leaking into a local watercourse. We take pride in making all our scenarios realistic and create the industrial environment. We brought in a real-life volunteer to play the casualty and it was that realistic the fire brigade heard the screams and checked to see if we needed any assistance.

Holly Goodwin, CATCH Skills Account Manager added,

“CATCH Skills provide their customers with the opportunity to tailor our courses to meet their individual company requirements and standards.  This involves our Commercial Team arranging a scope meeting with the customer, to understand their requirements in further detail.

No course is the same, just like no business works in the same way. This is what makes the bespoke option crucial to ensure each customer is satisfied with the training.  The team have tailored courses to replicate scenarios that may appear on customers sites, they have implemented familiar documentation such as permit to works, risk assessments and procedures for the delegates attending, and they have used real equipment donated from the customers within the demonstrations and practical elements.

The feedback we have received from both companies and trainers, is that the delegates are much more engaged and feel confident applying what they have learnt to their individual job roles.”

CATCH is thrilled to kick off the first Introduction to Industry skills training course of the year with 13 keen learners from Humberston Academy.

Greenergy have sponsored three of the young learner’s industry programmes this year. The first one was exclusive to Humberston Academy. Blain Wilkinson, Design and Technology teacher said

“The introduction to industry course provided by CATCH has been invaluable in helping our learners make informed choices about their career paths post 16. The course gives them valuable insight into what to expect from an apprenticeship and a career in industry. It helps our learners to understand that there is an entire world of opportunities waiting for them after they leave school and gives them real world experience of the type of industry that is available on their doorstep. The introduction to industry course also provides our learners with a chance to really stand out during the application and interview process for apprenticeships and colleges.

From a personal point of view I feel incredibly lucky to be able to work so closely with an industry leading training provider like CATCH. It has enabled me to help my students make more informed decisions when it comes to their career path post-16. I have always been incredibly passionate about offering learners as many opportunities as possible and working with CATCH and Greenergy has really enabled me to open up a whole host of opportunities that otherwise they wouldn’t have had chance to access. It Is refreshing and encouraging that companies like CATCH and Greenergy are reaching back into schools to really make the effort to bridge the gap between education and industry. I look forward to being able to continue working closely with CATCH and Greenergy to provide more opportunities to learners in the future.”

The experience takes place at the National Centre for Process and Manufacturing (NCPM) where students took part in practical elements such as solving scenarios and assembling pumps using Mechanical Joint Integrity processes. The sessions were led by CATCH Skills expert industrial trainers to give a realistic insight into future careers.

On Tuesday 19th April 2022 the CATCH Apprenticeship team successfully hosted their first apprenticeship employer recruitment event with over 150 excellent learners looking to gain one of the approx. 50 vacancies on offer. The event saw both north bank and south bank employers providing apprenticeship opportunities in Process Operations, Mechanical, Electrical and Instrumentation.

There was a range of vacancies available with companies such as Triton Power, Tronox, Prax, Birch

Solutions, VPI, Mitsubishi Chemicals and Lenzing. Wood group, Singleton Birch, Croda and Graytons. CATCH are engaging with a number of additional employers who are looking to recruit apprentices for a September start.

We spoke to the Process Technicians at Mitsubishi Chemicals to find out why they decided to be an apprentice, Harry said ‘I chose to do an apprenticeship within industry for the qualifications, experience and job progression.’ He continued ‘my advice to those considering an apprenticeship is to find a career you enjoy and can progress and excel in’.

Luke, a Process Technician at Mitsubishi said, ‘I chose to do an apprenticeship in process technologies to learn in a hands-on environment.’ He continued “my advice to new learners would be to research the career you want to do as most of these jobs are jobs for life.’

We asked VPI why they chose CATCH as their apprenticeship provider, they said ‘Our local training provider offers excellent facilities and support to meet our commitments to training in our production engineering and safety targets.’ We also asked what makes a great candidate, ‘Great candidates come prepared to engage in conversations allowing us to get to know them and how they can meet our expectations.’

After this fantastic event James McIntosh, COO summarised “It was a proud moment to host our first apprenticeship employer recruitment event and we are looking forward to playing a lead role in developing the next generation of our industries workforce through the CATCH Apprenticeship scheme. To see so many employers looking to recruit apprentices is a positive step forward for our region as we try to bridge the widening skills and competency gaps in engineering, operations and manufacturing based roles. The candidates gave a great first impression of themselves and there were some fantastic conversations had throughout the day as they learnt about the wide range of companies we work with and the roles they had available. We now look forward to some of those learners being successful and starting as CATCH Ap

prentices in September.”
