wearesdi supports local apprentice fair

wearesdi were among some big names at the Leicester College Apprentice fair last week recruiting for young apprentices.  Leicester College was celebrating National Apprenticeship Week (7-13 February 2022) by inviting potential apprentices to an Apprenticeship Fair on 9 February at the Freemen’s Park Campus.

The College is the largest apprenticeship training delivery organisation in Leicester and there are currently over 760 Leicester College students working with local businesses in apprentice roles.

As part of our ongoing commitment to CSR we have been running a successful apprentice scheme for the past 5 years.  We offer the opportunity for young students to train with us in our factory in joinery, welding or plastic fabrication.  The apprenticeship runs in unison with a recognised NVQ and there is the chance to become employed at the end.  wearesdi love to ‘grow our own’.

The event was a success and we spoke to a number of students and offered advice and knowledge about our scheme.  There was a real buzz about the event with students packed in the venue from 10am-3pm.

Tina Jivraj, Business Development Manager for Apprenticeships at Leicester College said: “Our apprenticeship programme provides students with a real job, where they get paid, gain experience and receive a qualification. The Apprenticeship Fair and events across National Apprenticeship Week will provide interested people with more information to help them make a decision on how an apprenticeship can work for them.”

National Apprenticeship Week is an annual celebration of apprenticeships that brings the whole apprenticeship community together to celebrate the impact of apprenticeships on individuals, employers and the economy.

wearesdi are offering the following apprenticeships:

  • Joinery
