"It's great to be held as an example to other apprentices as someone who has worked hard and been recognised for their efforts."

Rebekah Parsons


"I didn't really know what I wanted to do, but I enjoy problem solving. A BTEC Level 3 Engineering combined with the hands-on experience of an apprenticeship seemed a great combination."

Kenny Hodgson


"Tex Plastics have been great in encouraging me to develop my skills and broaden my role. I’m now looking forward to developing my experience here at their Derby site, as I take on my own apprentice and mentor their development.”

Daniel Tanser


“I didn’t know anything about plastic injection moulding, but seeing the customer list, it’s amazing just how diverse what we do is.”

Lucy Wood


Our track record of providing opportunity is industry leading

Rebekah Parsons is a 'Setter Technician' at TEX Plastics Barnstaple facility, she is the first ever female in this role. Rebekah was picked out by The British Plastics Federation to showcase women in the industry and featured in their International Women’s day magazine. On top of this she was also nominated, shortlisted and runner up in the finals of Apprentice of the Year in the Plastics Industry Awards 2023. There are plenty of other apprentices who have grown into a professional role through starting as an apprentice with TEX Plastics.

Former TEX Plastics maintenance apprentice Daniel Tanser has risen through the ranks and now heads up the automation team. Kenny Hodgson is a great example of the career progression opportunities within TEX Plastics and the ongoing investment programme. Kenny took up the vocational apprenticeship with TEX Plastics straight from leaving school. Kenny is now a fully qualified Quality Engineer and an important member of the Quality Assurance team at TEX Plastics Derby.

There are so many opportunities within the industry and directions an apprenticeship can take your personal and professional development in - the sky's the limit.
