Volvo Group Trucks UK and Ireland (representing both Volvo Trucks and Renault Trucks) has been recognised in the prestigious Centrica Top 100 apprenticeship employer list, which is compiled annually by the National Apprenticeship Service.
Volvo Group Trucks UK and Ireland were honoured when their Apprentice Programmes were ‘Highly Commended’ as runners-up in The British Army Award for Large Employer of the Year at the 14th National Apprenticeship Awards held on the 18th January 2018 in London. Judged by a panel of apprenticeship experts, the awards attracted over eight hundred entries nationwide.
After accepting the award, Adam Plastow Commercial and Apprentice academy manager at Volvo Group Trucks said, “We are so proud to have all the hard work of the last four years to be recognised as being among the very best in the country.
“As the largest HGV apprenticeship in the country we think this is a great accolade for both our programme and our apprentices. Whilst we believe our programme is great and we get excellent feedback from the apprentices and the business it is great to have it recognised at such a well-respected event.”
The prestigious Government sponsored awards recognises apprenticeship programmes that demonstrate exceptional results for both apprentices and business alike as well as celebrating individual apprentice achievements.
