In 2019 we set an ambitious target to create 100 new apprenticeships in the Group and our supply chain within the next five years. We currently employ 36 apprentices and have a further 16 colleagues using apprenticeship training to boost their skills and improve their job prospects.
As a member of the 5% Club, we are part of a dynamic movement of employers committed to ensuring that five per cent of our people are in earn-and-learn roles. We believe that apprentices are the future stars of our workforce, with opportunities for rewarding careers making a positive difference to homes, lives and communities.
