Six new apprentices, aged between 16 and 19, started their journey with us in 2019. We appointed:
· three Apprentice Gas Engineers;
· two Apprentice Joiners; and
· one Apprentice Bricklayer.
The apprentices completed a week of induction where they learnt about the range of services that we deliver and completed modules including Health and Safety training to make sure they understood how to keep safe in their new roles.
As part of their apprenticeships, they will complete an NVQ as well as learning on the job by gaining valuable skills and knowledge from a mentor who they will work closely with to get the experience they need to shape their future.
Our apprenticeship scheme has been running since 2005 and is a good opportunity for someone who wants to earn money and gain a qualification as well as getting on the job experience.
