On Thursday 17th March, Score Group plc held an open evening to provide information on the variety of apprenticeship opportunities the company can offer.
The annual event, held at Admiralty Gateway, Peterhead, was the fourth of its kind and is a sign that in spite of the current industry downturn, the company remains committed to providing global opportunities for training and development.
As always, the aim of the event was to give young people, seeking an apprenticeship the chance to find out more about the diverse range of services the company provides and learn more about how the company’s trainees are educated and trained through Score’s award winning apprenticeship scheme.
The company offers Modern Apprenticeships in Engineering and Business Administration as well as apprenticeships in NDT (Non-Destructive Testing), IT, Multimedia and Technical Sales.
On the night, various departments displayed a sample of the types of equipment used by the company; some of the latest technologies in engineering and recent company innovations. Score personnel, including current apprentices, were on hand to demonstrate these and to discuss the careers they have built with Score.
In addition to the Score Group displays, representatives of Peterhead Engineers Development Limited and North East Scotland College spoke of the ways that they partner with Score. The organizations explained the types of academic qualifications a Score apprentice can gain, including the PEO Level 2 Engineering course, National Certificate in Business Administration and HNC/HND qualifications in Engineering.
Tours of the company’s facilities for in-house technical training were also provided, demonstrating the types of engineering equipment a Score Engineering apprentice is trained to work with.
Approximately 200 people registered to attend the event, with many travelling significant distances to be there. Attendee feedback on the night was extremely positive and plans for a similar event in 2017 are already underway.
Managing Director of Score (Europe) Limited, Conrad Ritchie, said “This fantastic event was well attended and is a positive message at a time when training and competency are at risk. Score Group plc will continue to invest in the provision of best in class training for the benefit of future generations.”
