Employee engagement and development | UK & Europe | 2018
Our defence team based at Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose won the ‘Large Apprenticeship Employer of the Year’ award in the 2018 Cornwall Apprenticeship Awards.
According to the judges, the strength of our programme is due to ‘the wide range of apprenticeships on offer within the organisation, from aeronautical engineering to logistics and business administration. Progression rates at Serco are exceptional, with all of Serco Defence’s apprentices being offered a guaranteed job on completion, while being encouraged to take part in community and charity work to support corporate social responsibility.’
Hundreds of nominations were received for the Awards, which celebrate both the achievements of Apprentices and those employers who provide for and support them.
Rachael Stevenson, Serco Contract Director at RNAS Culdrose, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to win this award. We have a fantastic team who work really hard to ensure our apprentices get the most out of the scheme. They are all guaranteed a job at the end of their apprenticeship and we see some great skills coming through that are a real benefit to our business and to the local community.”
