Software engineers complete Renishaw apprenticeship scheme

Two Renishaw software engineers have graduated with 1st Class Honours in Systems Engineering after completing the Renishaw software apprenticeship scheme. Tom Noble and Sam Beard have been working towards their degrees from the University of South Wales, UK, while being supported by Renishaw both academically and financially.

Tom was delighted, saying, “Words cannot describe the elation of being awarded a 1st Class Honours Degree, a reward for the immense effort and commitment applied to the programme.”

The Renishaw Software Apprentice scheme is unique in its field, with apprentices working towards their degree over three to five years while gaining in-house training at the company. There are currently sixteen software apprentices at Renishaw, with a further seven starting at the company’s South Wales and Gloucestershire locations in September.

Renishaw was recently awarded ‘Outstanding Contribution to Apprenticeships in Gloucestershire’ at the Gloucestershire Apprenticeship Awards.
