HSS Hire has launched a new multi-discipline NVQ apprenticeship programme.
The new apprenticeship programme accommodates a broad range of skillsets – flexing to find and develop individuals’ strengths to achieve the qualification and provide a springboard into the world of work.
HSS Hire HR director John Hardman said: “We think apprenticeships are a hugely important training option for young people – they get a valuable qualification and get to work too – in our case, across all our different business areas so you learn about the whole operation.
“It builds confidence and lets people really see all options that are open to them. We’ve had outstanding successes by recognising and encouraging talent in this way – some of our best people started under previous apprenticeship programmes – so we really believe in them.
“The new scheme is a very exciting major investment – and a formal commitment to develop new, very skilled and qualified workers.”
HSS also operates an existing three-year Plant Maintenance City & Guilds apprenticeship programme, under which eight fitters are due to qualify this spring, before taking permanent roles at the company.
