National Apprenticeship Week 2018
As A&M grew we realised
we needed to be pro-active and combat the engineering skills
gap by developing our own engineers for the future.
Over the past 5 years we have developed our own
Apprentice Programme and we now have 8 current apprentices. We work closely with Dudley
College, where the apprentices do the academic part of their training.
We also have four former apprentices now
employed by A&M as engineers; three of these are studying HNC. Our
apprentices make a real impact to our manufacturing capabilities from an early
stage as they work on real jobs under the supervision of experienced staff
acting as mentors.
