The company currently employs twenty apprentices across four years, and recruits five or six on an annual basis. The apprentices work for four days a week in the factory, working on live projects currently being manufactured, and then spend a further day in a classroom environment undertaking the technical certificate element of the apprenticeship. Successful apprentices then have the opportunity, by means of an individual development plan, to spend time in each department to gain a broader knowledge of the business prior to joining a full fabrication team, or moving to developing more desk-based skills, such as with our technical, estimating or commercial teams.
These facilities have also benefited outside organisations on occasions, with both architects and consulting engineers receiving training in the Academy.
