You must have noticed in the media that the government is promoting the very thing that industry has known for years, the apprenticeship. Proeon has been supporting this venture for some time now without Sir Alan Sugar and a BBC tv film crew. Utilising the successful ECITB scheme, Carl Hanley was hired as the Proeon Apprentice last year, and is undergoing his education training at the renowned EAGIT centre in Norwich.
“This scheme gives me the opportunity to work in industry, gaining valuable experience, while formally receiving qualifications” said Carl Hanley, Proeon’s 2012 apprentice.
Kevin Magee, MD of Proeon commented “Apprenticeships are the future workforce, and you have to be aware of the skills shortfall that exists without making the investment.” For more info on apprenticeships check out http://www.ecitb.org.uk/ and http://dev.eagit.org/
