Advanced - Apprenticeship TrainingSuccess Demands Motivation

Following our success over the last 2 years we and working with Wakefield College, we plan to go from strength to strength. Our aim is to provide a successful and valuable support scheme for our apprentices, ensuring that their development and requirements are met as well as adding value to the company. Within the scheme all of our apprentices work with an in-house mentor and are encouraged to take ownership of their own projects and roles, developing their confidence and abilities. Our mentors are experienced within their own fields and are not only there to support, but to ensure their valuable knowledge is successfully passed on to these young people. These alliances are guaranteeing our future and every ones enthusiasm is a credit to them and an inspiration to the company.

Advanced AwardIn 2017 Advanced were fortunate enough to be nominated again by Wakefield College, this time for Large Employer of the Year 2017. Again named as finalists, the Award Ceremony was held at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park on the 6th March 2017. Coco Cola Partnerships were among the finalists in our category, and with such impressive blue chip competition we attended the ceremony just happy to have reached the finals. When Advanced were named as the winner of Large Employer of the Year 2017, it was with shock and immense pride that our Q E & Apprenticeship Manager Lynda Holbrey and two engineering apprentices Tom Webster and Ellis Bainbridge, were able to accept the award from his honour the Mayor of Wakefield, Councillor Harry Ellis. This has been a fantastic year for us and we aim to go from strength to strength, but I am sure you will agree that to attain this sort of recognition it is a team effort, Well done everyone!

In March 2016 Wakefield College held their first Apprenticeship awards and Advanced were fortunate to be nominated in the category of New Employer of the Year. In these same awards Tom Webster, one of our engineering apprentices, was also nominated for an award. He and Advanced were named as finalists in our respective categories and at the Awards Ceremony Advanced were announced as the winners of New Employer of the Year. Tom together with our General Manager Kevin Bell were both there to proudly accept the award on our behalf. Tom was a runner up in his category, but did extremely well and we are immensely proud of his achievement.
