Here at STFC’s Daresbury Laboratory, our apprentices are a huge asset to us, adding real value to the work we do.
Not only do they contribute to real-world research while they are learning, but they also get vital hands-on experience with some of the most advanced technologies and equipment available today.
In the process, they are helping to ensure that the UK has the skills it needs to stay at the cutting edge of research and innovation for decades to come.
Supporting our apprentices in their personal and professional development is extremely important, and we have a dedicated team to ensure that his happens.
This support has never been more important than in the last couple of years, particularly for those who found themselves in their first jobs and in completely new ways of working, thanks to the pandemic. However, their resilience has been outstanding.
It takes time and commitment to develop a successful apprenticeship scheme, but the results and benefits are absolutely worth it.
I couldn’t be more proud of our apprentices here at Daresbury, and look forward to supporting many more as our apprenticeship scheme continues to grow and thrive.
