Course Leader profile

Stephen Baitscheff

Locally trained apprentice plumber with 39 years in the plumbing and heating trade. I started my plumbing career as an apprentice working for a company within the Calder Valley Halifax. After qualifying I worked for another local company obtaining contacts all over the country. I have been self-employed for a number of years having my own business and employing plumbers and apprentices. We have worked on installation, repair and servicing of plumbing, heating and gas systems in domestic, commercial and industrial premises. Having worked for over 30 years in the trade and on the tools I had the opportunity to become a qualified teacher to pass on my knowledge and experience onto prospective students wishing to join the plumbing and heating trade. It is good practice to invest in people coming into the plumbing industry after all it is our future to train qualified and competent tradesman.
