National Apprenticeship Week 2018

5-9 March marks National Apprenticeship Week, and here at Gibbons we’re recognising the important event by interviewing employees past and present, asking them about their own apprenticeship and their opinion on the value of schemes for young people.

We’ve been welcoming apprentices to learn their trade with us for many years, and the friendly, professional and supportive Gibbons culture means that in many cases they remain with us long after qualifying.

However, we understand that there has been a gradual decline in the number of young people applying for electrical and mechanical apprenticeships in recent years, and we’d like to use National Apprenticeship Week to promote what is a varied, interesting and rewarding career.

The perception of engineering as a ‘dirty hands’ profession seems to be the main barrier to prospective apprentices, but in our video series we’ll look to dispel this perception by showing all aspects of the industry.

From design and programming to wiring, fault finding and problem solving, electrical and mechanical engineering offers a huge range of challenges and opportunities to progress.

Keep checking our What’s On page over the course of the week to watch new interviews from the Gibbons team.

As our business continues to grow, we’re often looking for committed, enthusiastic apprentices to come and begin their career with us. So for information on the Gibbons apprenticeship programme, call us on 01621 868 138 or email and find out how we can set you on your way to a successful engineering career.
