Apprenticeships go from Strength to Strength.

It is now five years since we began our Apprenticeship Scheme here at Ben Johnson Technology.

Back in 2012 we welcomed Pete Boden, our very first Apprentice Service Technician to the organisation, and after a strong start Pete is now a fully qualified engineer and a vital member of Technical Services team.
