On 6th February Specialist Joinery Group & STS Training won the SME Innovation Award at the NI Apprenticeship Awards in The Titanic Hotel Belfast.
This award acknowledged the excellence and originality by employers, working with local Training Suppliers, in the delivery of Apprenticeship training.
The ongoing partnership with STS Training and Specialist Joinery Group has meant that the Maghera firm can now offer a route to further education as well as a desirable career and specialist skills. Young people will find this route more attractive as they will gain a City & Guilds qualification while they are in paid employment – there is no requirement for them to leave and attend classes elsewhere, all training is delivered and assessed in the workplace.
Both STS and Specialist Joinery Group recognise that treating these young people as individuals and tailoring their training and development is key to their success and would urge other Employers to consider using this model.
