Renown Oil and Gas Celebrate National Apprenticeship Week
Apprentices are something we feel passionately about supporting. Renown aims to have a constant level of approximately 10 apprentices at a time. We feel like they bring a fresh approach to the Group, and as they are currently studying engineering, they have new ideas that they love exploring with their colleagues.
Apprenticeships provide young people with the opportunity to earn while they learn. In an industry like engineering, practical experience alongside qualifications is invaluable and will stand out on a CV.
“There is currently a massive skills shortage in engineering, and it still remains one of the highest demanding industries. It is crucial to get more people into engineering apprenticeships” said Renown Group’s Managing Director, John Hamilton.
You can see one of our apprentices, Ross, saying how much he loves his engineering apprenticeship below:
They not only benefit the employee and employer, but they help benefit the economy by closing the skills gap and reducing the number of unemployed people. it also allows the UK to take on a wider range of work, by having skilled employees.
Many of Renown Engineering’s employee’s started as apprentices, and have now been working for us for 20+ years. This is something we’re very proud of and we hope to continue.
