An electronics manufacturer has recognised the training success of staff.

Peterlee-based Seaward has awarded certificates to 10 production line assembly staff.

It came after they gained training qualifications including intermediate apprenticeships, business improvement techniques and manufacturing processes.

The workers are the latest to complete the company’s in-house training programme which combines on the job learning and more formal classroom sessions.

“Demand for talented and qualified people has never been greater and we are happy to invest in our people to ensure that they reach their maximum potential.”
