​Middleport Pottery’s apprentice Blade Eaton achieves Level 2 Diploma in Maintenance Operations

Re-Form Heritage are delighted to announce that apprentice Blade Eaton has achieved his Level 2 Diploma in Maintenance Operations after 2 years spent training and working at Middleport Pottery.

Blade joined the Re-Form Heritage team as an apprentice to Site and Maintenance Manager Dennis Behenna. During that time, Blade has gained experience across all areas of site maintenance, developing practical and professional skills and working alongside the Re-Form Heritage team and Middleport Pottery volunteers. Blade's apprenticeship is delivered via Achieve Training.

Dennis Behenna, who has overseen Blade’s time at Middleport Pottery, said: “In the two years that Blade has been with us his development has been admirable: he has made huge progress in terms of both his practical and communication skills. Blade is a fast learner and a hard worker, and he has been a pleasure to work with. I will be very sorry to see him go.” Blade’s skills are being taken up immediately as he has already been offered a role with Fearn Construction.

Blade’s Level 2 Diploma is a well-deserved achievement and a fitting culmination to all his hard work during his time at Middleport Pottery. He leaves with the very best wishes of all at Re-Form and Middleport Pottery.
