Focus on apprenticeships

We are very proud of the apprenticeship opportunities we offer to young people in Staffordshire and Shropshire.  

One area with a particular focus on apprenticeships is our electrical team, where an outstanding training programme has recently been highly commended by the Electrical Contractors Association (ECA).  

Apprenticeship and mentoring involves one-third of the workforce in the electrical team, with full-time employment for all apprentices on completion.  

The apprenticeship programme includes administrative as well as technical positions. This has resulted in improved support for the team from colleagues with relevant skills and knowledge.  

Better training results in happier customers, too. As well as skills training, these ‘bright spark’ apprentice electricians improve their communication skills, boost their problem solving abilities and develop bags of personal confidence. You tell us that you like the resulting right-first-time service and friendly staff.  

Apprentices are considered an important and valued part of the team, from day one. 

Apprentices and trainees from Property Plus met chief executive Sarah Boden for a catch up about their progress. 

One of those invited to meet Sarah was Hayden, 26, who is in the fourth year of an electrical apprenticeship. Hayden told us that “Sarah said she was proud to meet us and explained that apprentices are the future of the organisation. I think this is the best apprenticeship opportunity you can get. I’m definitely looking forward to further career progression here in the future.”
