Fire and security specialist Amthal, has welcomed the third generation of the Allam family, to join the business under the company’s successful apprenticeship scheme.

Luke Allam, son of founder and Operations Director John Allam, has started as an Apprentice Engineer, working closely with the team to progress seamlessly into the company strategy.

Course in fire emergency, and security systems

Says Luke: “Amthal has always been part of my life, and when the opportunity of work experience was presented, I grasped the chance to see what it was ‘all about,’ and understand the commitment of the Allam family to the business. It was clear to see and I had a great time working in such a positive environment that I wanted to stay and learn more, which the Apprenticeship scheme now provides.”

Luke will be shadowing the established company services, learning about design, installation and monitoring

The Level 3 Apprenticeship course in Fire Emergency, and Security Systems is delivered by a combination of JTL Training college based classroom learning and ‘on the job’ training, mentored by Amthal’s experienced team of engineers. All works and progress are monitored externally.

Luke will be shadowing the established company services, learning about design, installation and monitoring of latest smart solutions, including intruder, CCTV, Access Control and Fire Systems for residential and commercial applications.

Decision and commitment to Amthal

John Allam concluded: “Naturally I’m delighted and very proud to welcome Luke on board as the next generation ‘Allam’ joining our family business. Luke joining was his decision and commitment to Amthal after doing work experience in the summer.

We see as parents and as a company supporter of apprenticeships, there has been a significant change in attitudes towards vocational learning. This is reflected in the number of young people that are now choosing to go down this route as their ‘first choice’. Luke was determined from the outset and already making his own mark and identity on our engineering team.”
