Scheme allowed us to mould apprentices into Fascia team members

Scheme allowed us to mould apprentices into Fascia team members

To mark National Apprenticeship Week, South West Business Insider featured case studies of businesses with apprenticeship success stories in the area. Gary Knowles, our Operations Manager had the opportunity to explain how apprenticeships not only help candidates looking for work, but the businesses who take them on too.

The government’s approach to backing more apprenticeships in the area allowed us the chance to offer the scheme to two young adults - who have now entered full-time employment with us, after successfully completing their programmes.

The main benefit of taking the apprentices on was that it saved us money, due to the funding we received to be able to train them, but it also allowed us to mould the apprentices into Fascia team members, and they will now be employed by us on a permanent basis.

Being able to nurture young talent in the manufacturing industry is a positive way to increase the size of a team or business and will allow us and other companies to maintain capacity.

Paul Bennett is Managing Director of Fascia Graphics, the market leader for the production of graphic overlays and membrane keypads. For more information please visit our website.
