National Apprenticeship Week 2023

8 Feb 2023

It’s National Apprenticeship Week!

Entering our 22nd year in business, we have seen apprentices progress and flourish into skilled trades and managerial roles, many of our original apprentices are still with us today! As a company we strongly believe in giving young people opportunities and we love seeing them develop and succeed.

We caught up with one of our previous apprentices Brandon, take a look at his story below.

I finished my A-Levels in Spring of 2014 without a clue what I was going to do next, I always knew university wasn’t going to be for me so when an apprenticeship opportunity at FPM arose, I jumped at the chance.

I undertook a Level 3 Business in Administration apprenticeship in which I successfully completed in 2018, which seems like a lifetime ago now! Working closely with engineers, managerial staff, and other office colleagues it helped me gain the necessary skills to complete my apprenticeship. On completion, the knowledge and skills learnt were invaluable, allowing me to excel in my day-to-day role. The course, without a doubt laid the foundations for me to continue growing and progressing within the company.

Most recently, I completed a Diploma in Digital Marketing in which the course harnessed my passion for marketing and social media, on completion I was awarded with a promotion within the company as ‘Business & Marketing Facilitator’.

I would highly recommend an apprenticeship, the knowledge gained via your course modules paired with experience and information gained in real-time scenarios is for sure a winning combination.

Also, take a look below at two previous apprentices Conall & Robert who have both recently completed there electrical apprenticeships.

We are extremely proud of them all and look forward to seeing them progress further with FPM. ✅
