The apprenticeship programme offers young adults the opportunity to begin their career in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and maths) industry. Apprenticeships at EGGER lead to a Level 3 Scottish Vocational Qualification, with the potential to go on and achieve a degree.
In 2019/20 EGGER Barony won three awards for its successful apprenticeship programme. It received an Ayrshire Business Award for developing Ayrshire’s Young Workforce, a S1jobs award for Best Employer Training and Development, and the Skills Development Scotland Scottish Apprenticeship Award for SME Apprentice Employer of the Year.
Heiko Lichtblau, Plant Director at EGGER Barony, said, “We are delighted to welcome our new apprentices to the team. Over 20% of our current workforce joined EGGER Barony as an apprentice, which illustrates our ongoing commitment towards the development of our employees.
Heiko continues, “Our Apprentice Forest recognises the first step of our apprentices career, and like the trees, we can watch them grow alongside our business”
Recruitment for the 2021 EGGER apprenticeship programme will start in November 2020. For more information, please contact Katrina.McEwan@egger.com
