A fundamental component of the Company is the ongoing programme of recruitment and training of Apprentices.
At the 2014 Blackpool & Fylde College Student of the Year Awards, the Company was honoured to receive the Employer of the Year with the following accolade.
“This employer actively supports the up-skilling of the community by offering Apprenticeships to individuals of all ages, and has been working with the College for over 30 years. The company is a firm believer of providing young people with long-term, sustainable employment and as such offers excellent career progression, including supporting Apprentices into Higher Education. This employer is an excellent example of how Apprenticeships benefit both the organisation and the individual as well as safeguarding the future of the industry as a whole.”
It was good to receive this Award and simple note of recognition that went with it as the recruitment, training and retention of Apprentices quite often goes unnoticed.
