After years of working in the fields of engineering and training, he saw an educational gap in the sector and wanted to create an avenue for ductwork trades to prove their competency and skills, ensuring that they are able to acquire a recognised qualification and obtain the necessary skills card to ensure accessibility to construction sites

Starting in the 70s, Paddeco Director, Joseph Lloyd started his apprenticeship with Shell UK Oil Ltd where he gained his indentures. His apprenticeship didn’t just provide him with engineering skills but also the knowledge of teamwork and leadership which would be relevant to this day.

My experience with Paddeco from start to finish has been brilliant. From helping with a payment plan, continual contact and support to knowledge sessions the whole qualification was achievable, informed and seamless. Thank you!

Although I took my first steps in the industry some 30 years ago as an operative, it wasn’t until 15 years ago that I realised my passion for teaching. With Joseph Lloyd's guidance I made the wise decision to become a certified assessor teacher. Paddeco provides a supportive approach which helps with the candidate's concerns of “managing it all” during the assessment and training programme. Having worked for several training companies, I can wholeheartedly say that Paddeco aims to work with the candidate not only to complete the qualification but to finish the programme with the confidence and the knowledge needed to go out and pass on a variety of skills to their workmates which will benefit both their workplace and our industry.
