National Apprenticeships week 2020

(3rd to 9th February)

 

The theme of this year’s National Apprenticeships Week is ‘Look Beyond’, encouraging everyone to celebrate the diversity of opportunity and value that apprentices bring to the workplace.

Apprenticeships are about coaching the future generation of Knauf employees – we’re developing our own home-grown talent that will enable us to drive our business forward. Through the hire of apprentices, our staff are able to impart their tacit knowledge to the prospective workforce. It also provides the business with a great opportunity to guide, coach, and mentor individuals who are eager to learn and develop their careers with us.

 

“I would say that the best part of my apprenticeship so far would have to be fitting into the team and getting stuck in to complete work.” 

 Kieron, Multi Skilled Engineering Apprentice.

 

An apprenticeship is a career with accompanying assessment and development programmes. It is an opportunity for individuals to ‘earn while they learn’. By doing so, apprentices are able to gain a wealth of knowledge in their chosen industry while gaining qualifications.

 

“I am surrounded by a bunch of friendly characters that will always drop what they’re doing to help me. I couldn’t have any better mentors to learn from.”

Sam, Multi Skilled Engineering Apprentice.

 

Knauf UK & Ireland have a responsibility to ensure our apprentices have a rich experience working in their chosen line of work, supported by experienced members of staff and encouraged to develop.

 

“I think that Knauf have offered me unlimited support; if I have any queries, everyone is nice enough to give me a hand or point me in the right direction to someone who can.”

Kieron, Multi Skilled Engineering Apprentice.

 

Our goal is to become an apprenticeship provider of choice – an employee who can aid succession planning in each area of the business. We’re extremely proud of our apprenticeship programme and the apprentices we work alongside. Our apprentices help us to Build for the world we live in.
