Cartwright introduces new apprenticeships

16 November 2017 #CV Sector #News #TNB News #Trailer

Cartwright, the leading UK bodywork and trailer manufacturers, have announced two new apprenticeship schemes.

This year the Cartwright Group has taken on 33 apprentices, with 24 inducted onto the existing highly-successful two-year programme which has been running since 2012. In addition, five apprentices will be embarking upon the new welding course, and a further four beginning the new paint programme, including the first woman to join the scheme, organized in conjunction with Trafford College. The additional schemes have been created to support the growth of the company but also to address a skills gap in these areas.

This year the Cartwright Group was named as one of the UK’s top 100 apprenticeship employers by the National Apprenticeship Awards, and its apprenticeship programs have been specially designed to encourage school and college leavers into a profession and learn essential work and social skills to prepare them for a career in engineering.

Cartwright Chairman Peter Cartwright has played a significant role in introducing the programmes, recognising the importance of providing on-going engineering excellence and developing the skill sets within the company.

He commented, “We take great pride in the fact that our apprenticeship programme provides our young apprentices with the necessary skills to pursue a career in engineering.  We are equally delighted to be able to launch two new training programmes to further expand our offering. We are confident that both the paint and welding programmes will continue to grow in popularity as has our original apprenticeship programme.”
