This experience ensures their academic study is anchored in the practicalities of ‘doing the job’ the Tex Plastics way. This ‘home grown timber’ approach has been very successful for Tex Plastics and what makes it more fulfilling is when you see the apprentices mature and move on to key roles within the business.

Purchasing, and helping monitoring material availability will be the key day to day activities for Sam. However, this apprenticeship encompasses the entire procurement cycle, and achieving the Level 4 in Procurement and Supply will enable Sam to use their breadth and depth of experience to position themselves as a fully effective skilled professional within the Tex Plastics commercial team. This will be supported by the attainment of a Level 4 Diploma with the Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS).
