We have a long tradition of apprenticeships and are among the largest employers of apprenticeships in the UK. Our 2000 (UK) apprentices currently in training make up 6% of our UK workforce and are one of our pipelines of talent to help us meet the future engineering, technology and business skills we need to compete effectively. Each day we’ll look at a different way apprenticeships deliver benefit to individuals, our business, our communities and to creating better diversity and inclusivity.

Apprenticeships work for our communities - Wednesday 7 March
Our apprenticeships also work for our communities in many different ways: From charity challenges or local community projects; to promoting wider economic benefit and social mobility. Our case studies will show how our wider communities benefit from our £90M investment in skills and early careers.
