Company invests in its existing employees through apprenticeships

Apprenticeships are not just for school leavers, as proved by staff at Invensys Eurotherm in Worthing.

The employees, Claire Moore, 41, Amanda Henry, 48, Sharon Ambridge, 48, Alison Trapp, 43, and 24-year-old Dominique Mardle, despite having full time roles at the company, were keen to improve their skill sets and gain a formal qualification. They have since embarked upon an NVQ level-two apprenticeships in customer services.

Alison said: “We would all definitely recommend it. It took a while to get back into studying, but it’s very rewarding. We are also going through the process together, which is helpful. There is a lot of support available, too.”

Sharon said: “It is investment in us as employees. The company is encouraging our development and pushing us to the next level. Once we have qualifications, we can look towards working our way up.”
