CMCA(UK) is a staunch supporter of local development opportunities. In 2014 we launched our own Apprenticeship Scheme to offer school and college leavers the opportunity to gain the skills and experience needed to establish a career within the company. Our apprenticeship scheme is focused on building confidence, improving personal and work based skills, and gaining specialist knowledge whilst working alongside our experienced subject matter experts. We believe that training is not only about ticking boxes, but that apprentices can bring great value to our business in the form of fresh ideas, energy and a different perspective. For those looking to jump straight on the career ladder rather than pursuing a University education, an apprenticeship is a perfect alternative option.
To date the CMCA(UK) scheme has welcomed six apprentices, all of whom have enriched our workplace and added real value to the company. Additionally, the individuals have acquired vocational skills and experience which will prove extremely useful regardless of their ultimate career decisions.
