Warrington-based A-Plant has been celebrated once again for being one of the UK’s leading apprenticeship employers.
The equipment hire company was named in the Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer list for the second year running at the National Apprenticeship Awards held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. It is also the only major equipment rental company to be included in the list.
A-Plant’s commitment to training the next generation of skilled plant maintenance teams, customer service personnel and transport and logistics teams is pioneering for the construction equipment rental sector. There are currently 166 apprentices in training across five different apprenticeship streams.
A-Plant invests more than £2m in the programme annually and has an industry leading retention rate.
The company’s apprenticeship programme was first launched in 2005. Since then many apprentices have been promoted to senior roles across the business and the programme is oversubscribed each year.
The Birchwoodcompany holds its own apprenticeship celebration to recognise the outstanding work of individuals.
