Description:Pictured are Craft, Technician and Student Apprentices receiving their practical training under the watchful eyes of the Training Instructors in the Apprentice’s Training School, Lichfield Road Site, Stafford.

Over the years many people from all over the country and overseas came to be trained as Apprentices in the Stafford Works. As far back as 1909 Siemens recognised the importance of Apprentice training.

Siemens Brothers purchased the land in 1901 and built the factory and offices which were ready to start production in 1903. In 1918 Siemens merged with several companies, including Dick, Kerr and Co., to become the English Electric Co. Two years later in 1920, The English Electric Co bought the Stafford Works. The English Electric Co merged with GEC (The General Electric Company) during 1968. The Lichfield Road Site became part of GEC Power Engineering Ltd. On 22 March 1989 became part of GEC ALSTHOM, an Anglo French Joint Venture. On 22 June 1998 became part of ALSTOM with global HQ in Paris and to date (2013) continues to be part of the ALSTOM Group.
