Daily Mirror Boost for ATL as Prof Trades Up to Success

“The Man who Swapped Science for Plumbing”

A redundant scientist  is earning ‘top’ money in the plumbing industry after taking a training course with  top trades’ school ATL, the Daily Mirror has revealed.  

Leading trade skills provider ATL made news across the country today after laboratory scientist Steve Banks hung up his test tubes and went looking for a way to turn his life round.

And Steve, aged 43, who has two sons, Mathew and Daniel, as well as a three-year old girl Ruby and lives with his wife, Naomi, said he wished he had taken the plunge years ago.

Steve told the Daily Mirror: “I started looking around for courses I could do in my own time while carrying on working and asking people for recommendations and found that ATL had a very good reputation.”

When Steve was made redundant in 2009, he had almost completed his plumbing course and was about to set up his own business… Now he earns about £45,000 a year, much more than in his previous job.

Steve said: “It was great really, I got so much confidence from the course that my business grew through word of mouth.”

Altogether, Steve from Letchworth, Herts, spent about £6,500 from his redundancy money on his training. “This was a lifetime investment for me and it is paying off.”

Steve says that he is a very practical person who always enjoys doing things with his hands. He used to help his father who was working in the building trades before he retired.

Like every new thing, Steve admits that his business was slow to start with, but soon people began to ring him, saying that a friend had recommended his services. Now he is thinking of employing extra people to help him.

The Guarantees Scheme to Create New Jobs

“Investment in Infrastructure Projects is Crucial for Economic Growth”  

The Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, has unveiled a new UK Guarantees scheme to accelerate major infrastructure projects and create new jobs in the building engineering industry.

The new loan guarantees scheme will enable private sectors investors to benefit from more funding for big building projects which will generate jobs and help economic growth, the UK’s Economics and Finance Ministry said.

It follows two other significant announcements from last week in which the government committed a £9 billion investment package to improve railway networks across England and Wales; and  Funding for Lending Scheme which will enable businesses across Britain to access more and cheaper loans.

The UK Guarantees scheme will kick start £40 billion worth of infrastructure projects which will pave the way for more employment opportunities in the trades. The first guarantees are expected to be awarded this autumn.

Under the scheme, the Government will ensure that where major infrastructure projects are struggling to access private finance because of adverse credit conditions, these projects can go ahead.

The Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander, who made the announcement with the Chancellor of the Exchequer last week, said:

“The measures we’re announcing today will help work get started on many important infrastructure projects and help our major exporters, providing lasting benefits for thousands of people and a significant boost to the economy.”

Chancellor George Osborne commented that the Government’s credentials with the International Monetary Fund, and other similar organisations, have helped millions of British families and businesses to keep down the cost of borrowing.

Mr Osborne added: “Now ‘UK Guarantees’ will use that hard-won fiscal credibility to provide public guarantees of up to £50bn of private investment in infrastructure and exports.”
