Alan Love achieves first RT Resources Automotive Glazing SVQ

R T Resources Ltd is a GQA Approved Centre based in Ayr, Scotland. They have been delivering SVQs and Modern Apprenticeships to the glass and glazing sector since 2005 and in May 2011 began delivering to the automotive glazing sector.

RT Resources recruited an experienced Automotive Glazing Assessor and have accessed funding for Modern Apprenticeships for employees of all ages.

Recently the Centre had their first Automotive Glazing ‘achiever’ when Euro Windscreens' Alan Love, pictured right receiving his certificate from Colin Paterson of RTR, achieved his Modern Apprenticeship.

Alan, based in East Kilbride, says, “I am delighted to have achieved my Automotive Glazing Modern Apprenticeship with R T Resources Ltd. R T Resources Ltd kept to their word from start to finish, providing face to face support on a regular basis, keeping me focused on the qualification and offering technical support/advice without telling me how to run my business.”

He went on to say “It’s great to have a local company providing qualifications in automotive glazing. The automotive industry needs to tighten regulations and build consumer confidence to ensure everyone’s confidence, but this has to be achievable within the workplace especially for smaller businesses. Many thanks to R T Resources Ltd for helping me achieve where others let me down”.

Claire McCallum, CEO of R T Resources Ltd, said, “I’m delighted that Alan has completed his Modern Apprenticeship in Automotive Glazing, our first in Scotland. As the only Scottish based provider of Automotive Glazing SVQs and Modern Apprenticeships, we hope that his achievement will encourage others in the industry to follow suit in gaining a nationally recognised qualification with our support”.

Sean Hayes, the GQA External Verifier for RT Resources said “ I am pleased to see RT Resources have had the first of what I am sure will be many Automotive Glazing SVQ Achievers. I first met Claire when I was working at Autowindscreens and her passion and commitment to quality was obvious. The rest of the team at RT Resources are equally keen to provide the best possible service for its candidates. I have known their Automotive Glazing Assessor, Colin, for around 8 or 9 years and his experience and knowledge is without doubt. I look forward to working with Claire and her team as they progress in qualifying Scotland!”
