The apprentice will be asked to fill out job sheets and record what jobs have been completed that day. Job sheets are very important to our company as we are ISO accredited. We will require the apprentice to be able to follow processes that are already set out in the company and be able to record important information when required. The apprentice will learn how to stock take from shadowing an experienced member of staff. Stock take will then become one of their responsibilities and they will be in charge of updating the system each day/week. As the apprentice becomes more experienced, they will have the opportunity to learn how to powder. Through the building of the skill, they will then start to powder certain customers which will progress them into doing finer more specific work. The apprentice will be asked to monitor the quality of work and record any discrepancies on nonconformity sheets. The apprentice will also learn how to check goods in and out using a document and this will become a part of their daily duties.
