CENTRAL ELECTRICITY GENERATING BOARD
|Engineers responsible for training|
At each power Station there is a senior engineer who makes a
special point of looking after the interests of apprentices.
The engineer at your power station is Mr. J.P. Capes
While you are on the full-time technical college course you
must take the college holidays. This will mean that you will
have more holiday than you are entitled to at the station but
you will be given work to do by the college. When you are at
a power station, it is very important that you check with your
Supervisor before you make any arrangements for holidays, giving
at least two weeks notice. Your holiday entitlement for the year
starting on the 1st April 1964 is 6 working days. Your
entitlement from 1st April 1965, and for subsequent years
is 2 weeks.
|Educational Incentives Scheme|
There is a scheme which provides awards and prizes for good
progress at technical college. Up to 75% of your fees can be
refunded on successful completion of an approved course and book
token prizes up to two and five guinea's can be awarded for
passing certain examinations. Claims for awards under the terms
of this scheme should be made on form R.83 obtainable from your
engineer responsible for training.
If you are ill while you are on the full-time course, you
should notify me immediately and let me have a doctor's certificate
not later than the third day of your illness, and after that at
weekly intervals. When you are at a station, the notification
and certificates should go to your station superintendent. If you
are ill, wherever you are, you should always notify the Ministry of
National Insurance. If you do not send in the notes you may have
some difficulties with your wages later on, and you will not be able
to claim sick pay.
Your sick pay entitlement is as follows:
On your first day at the power station you will be given
overalls. You should make your own arrangements for laundry.
