We're celebrating our apprentices on National Apprenticeship week 2018
To mark National Apprenticeship Week 2018, we’ve been celebrating the achievements of our current and former apprentices, and catching up with some of our SGN Apprentices of the Year to find out where they are now and what they enjoyed most about their apprenticeships.
Commercial Services Manager Wallace, who joined us in 2009, said he felt a career with SGN would offer him job security and a job for life, with plenty potential to progress within the company.
Our gas emergency engineers John and Mark both agreed that learning from experienced engineers and getting hands on was the most enjoyable part of their apprenticeships. Mark went on to say: “I’d say to someone considering applying to become an apprentice, do it, it’s a good job. For those who currently are apprentices, listen to your tutors, listen to the older guys and the other engineers who are already doing the job – they have a lot of knowledge for you to learn.”
Since launching our apprenticeship programme in 2008, we have recruited 115 apprentices for our six depots in Scotland and a further 191 for the South of England. We invest between £90,000 and £140,000 in each apprentice and that investment has been rewarded by the fact that the programme has a 97% retention rate.
