Work-wise are helping us with that transition by delivering an Employability Programme to all of our apprentices at the start of their working career with us. The course is very interactive and helps prepare our apprentices with an understanding of employer expectations which enables them to become an invaluable employee right from the start."

Its a great programme and has changed the way in which our Mentors approach their responsibilities."
