Our 5th Annual Apprenticeship Information Evening was held on Thursday 23rd March. Score Group plc this year teamed up with Peterhead Engineers Development Limited (PEDL) to hold a joint event. The Score event was held at Admiralty Gateway, whilst PEDL opened its doors at Wellbank Business Park.
The event was an opportunity to meet with current and time-served Score apprentices and learn more about the range of apprenticeships we offer, as well as finding out about the training services provided by PEDL to both individuals and employers, including National Certificate qualifications, Modern Apprenticeships, IT courses and SVQ Assessor and Verifier training.
At the Score part of the event, each stand area included information and examples of the type of work Score is involved in be it engineering, workshop, subsea, marine as well as IT, multimedia and other departments. In addition this year, the workshop was manned with demonstrations including non-destructive testing, PSV, valve diagnostics and of course some of the practical training applied throughout the apprenticeship programme. A room was also dedicated to our HR and apprentice co-ordination teams to further discuss the routes that can be taken into the apprenticeship programme and possible pathways for progression.
PEDL instructors and staff welcomed visitors and gave guided tours of the training centre where Score apprentices gain their initial engineering training and qualifications over year 1. Current apprentices were on hand to discuss the training they received and to show some examples of their work.
Also in attendance at the combined event were Girls in Engineering and DYWNE (Developing the Young Workforce North East), who were on hand to offer their advice to prospective apprentices.
Over the evening, there was a very large turnout of potential school and college leavers from throughout the North East of Scotland, all interested to find out more. Many in attendance were not aware of the wide range of apprenticeships and opportunities available within the organisation, or the range of services offered to clients globally. The application process is now well underway for our summer intake. For further information visit http://www.score-group.com/careers/
