Our Apprenticeship Programme

Our well established apprenticeship programme started in 1990 and is essential to ensuring we have high quality people working within our organisation. We seek ambitious candidates who are ready to take ownership of their development, work hard to achieve their potential and grow with an innovative and creative employer. Our apprenticeships will give you the opportunity to gain practical, industry workplace experience and achieve qualifications that are relevant to your chosen career path - all whilst earning a wage.

Our apprentices develop knowledge and skills by working within a number of our key business areas whilst being supported by a designated mentor, who guides them through their programme. They work alongside a specialist learning provider to study towards your academic qualifications and develop skills which can then be transferred back into the workplace. Our apprentices achieve nationally recognised qualifications upon successful completion of the apprenticeship programme. You will achieve a nationally recognised qualification upon successful completion of your apprenticeship programme. We are committed to the development of our employees and we will work with you to get the best out of your programme.

Personal Growth Programme

Our apprenticeship programmes are aimed at individuals who are as passionate about learning as we are about developing our employees. We offer many opportunities for personal growth throughout the apprenticeship programme, to help our apprentices succeed and reach their potential.

  • Workshops

    We will deliver a number of training workshops which are designed to develop skills in communication, time management, team working and project management.

  • Health & Safety

    Health & Safety is our first priority and it is important for us to provide a safe and secure workplace.

  • Team Building

    We run an annual team building event for all apprentices, which is fun, interactive and designed to encourage team working skills which can be transferred back into the workplace.

  • Community Project

    We encourage our apprentices to participate in various community projects. The projects are designed to give something back to the local community, whilst helping apprentices to enhance their skills and workplace experience.
