Robb Ballantine – Electrical Engineer

After completing his secondary schooling at James Hargest College Robb was offered an apprenticeship with Southern Group Training and is seconded to his host company, Munro Electrical.

To complete the Level 4 National Certificate in Electrical Engineering Robb must complete a range of unit standards comprising both theory and practical elements. Robb’s off job theory training has been provided by the Southern Institute of Technology through his attendance at weekly evening classes and through a two week block course each year.

As a Modern Apprentice Robb has his own Modern Apprenticeship Coordinator who has developed an individual Training Plan for him which sets realistic goals and timeframes to achieve them in. The Coordinator meets with Robb on a regular basis and is available as a mentor to both Robb and his supervisor.
