Sweco Supports National Apprenticeship Week 2019

28 February 2019
Sweco is delighted to be celebrating National Apprenticeship Week, which runs from 4-8 March. This year’s theme is ‘Blaze a Trail’, which aims to highlight the benefits of apprenticeships to employers, individuals, local communities and the economy.

At Sweco, we recognise the value apprentices bring to our business and to the industry as whole, as well as the significant learning experience it provides for these individuals. This year, we are delighted to have apprentices working at all levels (Levels 2-8) across the business and to have four individuals who are working towards their degree apprenticeships.

“We see apprenticeships as a way of developing and retaining talent in our organisation. The Sweco apprentice programme has injected dynamism and enthusiasm across the business in numerous expertise areas. Our apprentices are involved in a diversity of projects and have gained valuable experience as they work towards both qualification and professional recognition.” said Neil Willis, Sweco’s Learning and Development Business Partner.

“The key benefit of the degree apprenticeship programme is gaining invaluable work experience at Sweco whilst studying, which means that I’m far more experienced than graduates fresh out of University,” said George Citrone, a degree apprentice in our Buildings team.

As part of National Apprenticeship Week, we will be attending Leeds’ Apprenticeship Recruitment Fair on 5 March at the First Direct Arena. If you are around, do come visit our stand (#81) to learn more about our apprenticeship programme and to speak to some of our apprentices.
