Success for eTech as they are recognised as aTop 100 Apprenticeship Employer
eTech has been recognised in the prestigious Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer list, sponsored by City & Guilds, which is compiled annually by the National Apprenticeship Service and recognises excellence in businesses that employ apprentices. The list was announced at the National Apprenticeship Awards, which took place on 26th January at the Grosvenor House, A JW Marriott Hotel, London. After a tough selection process the most exceptional apprenticeship employers from all National Apprenticeship Awards employer categories went forward to feature in the list which showcases the breadth of employers who now offer apprenticeships.
eTech runs an extensive talent programme that recruits a lot of young people in the midlands. Whether you are on our graduate programme or coming to us as an Apprentice, by joining eTech you will get to experience different areas of an expanding, market-leading organisation. Ultimately it is our work philosophy that makes the difference, and we would not have been able to get this award if each colleague did not work with conviction and enthusiasm at full capacity.
Commenting on the company’s entry in the Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer list, eTech Co-founder, David Driver, said:
“eTech is a fast paced innovative and highly responsive company and we understand that young people are the life blood of the software business. Apprentices are a key part of our new talent programme bringing fresh ideas, new perspectives and loads of enthusiasm to the business. At the end of an apprenticeship they offer immediate value gained from the experience of working with us and recognition of this is why we are successful.”
Sue Husband, Director of the National Apprenticeship Service commented on the named Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers:
“Apprentice employers are creating opportunities for young people to gain the skills and knowledge they need to succeed, in some cases up to degree level, while working and earning. I hope that the success of these Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers will encourage more businesses across England to follow their example and find out how apprenticeships can help grow a skilled and highly qualified workforce.”
