Pershore College trainer assessor gains engineering professional status

A Pershore College (@PershoreColWCG) trainer assessor has been awarded a major engineering professional status and is now set to pass on his expertise to college students.

Andy Tabberer-Catt has been recognised by the Engineering Council and the Institution of Agricultural Engineers.

Following a rigorous assessment, he has achieved MIAgrE status which demonstrates his commitment to keeping high standards in engineering training.

The Engineering Council assessed Andy for his suitability and professionalism, while also assessing how he passed his own high standards onto his students.

Andy works with Level 2 and Level 3 Land-Based Engineering apprentices at Pershore College, which is part of college group WCG.

He said:

“It has been a long road to achieve this professional status but it was all worth it and it can only be of great benefit to the reputation of land-based engineering at Pershore College.

“I completed a major report with supporting evidence demonstrating my commitment to keeping the high standards set by the council and then also display how that impacts my students.

“I have already had businesses and students comment on the new letters after my name and I hope it will bring a renewed confidence in employers who are considering sending their apprentices to train with us.

“It is fantastic to have been recognised in this way and I look forward to continuing to strengthen my relationship with the Institution of Agricultural Engineers.

Mark Eden, Director of Work-Based Learning at WCG, added:

“WCG is delighted with Andy’s recent certification of professional status through the Engineering Council. 

“It demonstrates the high level of expertise, experience and knowledge Andy holds within the Land Based Service Engineering area.

“It provides confidence to our clients that learners and apprentices are receiving a high standard of delivery ensuring they all benefit from a quality provision which is recognised by a reputable independent regulatory body.”
