Hiring an apprentice is a great way to develop talent and create a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce. And, of course, being an apprentice is a real job, where you learn, gain experience – and get paid.
Local communities benefit too, with opportunities for young people and a general up-skilling of the workforce. What’s more, employers can get funding from the government to help pay for apprenticeship training.
Companies who support apprenticeships demonstrate a long-term commitment to company growth, people development and service excellence... which is why potential clients want to know all the details.
Does Maple run apprenticeship programmes?
100%. As a family business, we’ve built our reputation on the skills and experience of our people – and it extends to the next generation.
In collaboration with the Stockport Engineering Training Centre, we’ve been supporting engineering operative apprentices for three years. Two have joined the company full-time, while our most recent is combining hands-on experience on the factory floor with a college course.
We’ve also recently taken on our first apprentice in CAD software and design, who spends four days each week at Maple and one at college.
