Yesterday, the Department for Education launched a new initiative to raise awareness of the benefits of apprenticeships to SMEs, as part of a programme that will see more than 200,000 apprentices recruited by small businesses in the next year.
We’re proud to be one of the success stories to feature in the Get In Go Far campaign. Our Partner James Nevin was interviewed last night on London Live News where he talked about the value of apprenticeships to businesses and young people. As he explained:
“As a growing business in a competitive industry, our dynamic workforce is our strongest asset, and apprenticeships provide a valuable pipeline to a constant stream of fresh talent. At Blue Engineering we place emphasis on creative, solution-oriented thinking. Apprentices are not stuck in their ways – they bring new ideas and their own ambitions to the business environment. Hiring apprentices is integral to our growth strategy and ensures that we’re constantly at the forefront of innovation in structural engineering.”
