Apprenticeships in Precision Glass Blowing

Poulten Selfe & Lee Ltd Case Study

Poulten Selfe & Lee Ltd were established in the United Kingdom in 1850 and specialise in viscosity measurement. 
The RHEOTEK range of automatic viscometers are suitable for measuring petroleum liquids, polymers, pulp, cellulose, electrical papers and inks.  Key applications include: (Petroleum) Aviation jet fuel, diesel, biofuel, residual fuel, new and used lubricants and bitumens.
Principal Locations:
UK (Head Office) - Development, Manufacturing, Calibration, Testing & Glassblowing
USA (RHEOTEK USA) – Sales & Service support.
Denmark (RHEOTEK Nordic) – Sales & Service support Northern Europe/Scandinavia

Training:
Poulten Selfe & Lee Ltd recognise that continued success and development rely heavily on the skills of its staff and technicians. Much of the test equipment is produced by hand with exacting standards and takes years of practice and a particular aptitude for the work.

IPS International were initially approached to provide information, advice, guidance and support in the recruitment of glass blowing apprentices.  This quickly extended to delivering work-based learning to the highly competent existing staff.  Under the direction of IPS Assessor & Trainer Lee Harland, PSL employee David Blair (pictured) is on track to achieve his GQA Level 3 Diploma in Glass Processing in April 2013 and two successfully recruited apprentices commenced the GQA Level 2 Certificate in Glass Processing Apprentice Framework  in March.

Joanne Taylor, Manufacturing Section Leader at IPS International Ltd commented, "these are exciting times, with many changes to the perception of training throughout the glass industry.  Companies like Poulten, Selfe & Lee Ltd are keeping vital traditional glass blowing skills alive by investing time and money in developing a younger generation to the trade and IPS feel honored to be a part of this”.
