Prospective Apprenticeship candidates of both Alpha Manufacturing and Bri-Stor Systems were welcomed, along with their parents to come and discover what the apprenticeship programme has to offer.
Around 100 students and parents gathered at Bri-Stor Systems where they were welcomed by current and former apprentices alongside Bri-Stor Group directors. Split into small groups, they were then given a guided tour of the entire site including Bri-Stor Systems assembly area, Atlas Coating powder coating plant and Alpha’s Manufacturing facilities.
The success of the open evening, which was the busiest since the Group began holding the event, reflects the significant growth of the Apprenticeship programme in recent years.
Alpha’s Apprenticeship manager Stephen Bowen said of the evening:
“It’s great to see so many young people now seriously considering an engineering apprenticeship over other options such as A-Levels. The turnout this evening and the amount of applications that we’re now receiving shows how perceptions are changing as young people see the benefits of joining a programme that offers hands on experience and a real chance of progression.”
Applications for the 2018 programme will now be open until mid-February when all applications will be assessed and interviews arranged. If you’re interested in an Engineering apprenticeship and would like to apply, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
