Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2018

Forbes were very pleased to host local MSP Rachael Hamilton at their Kelso factory on Tuesday 9th March for Scottish Apprenticeship Week, where she met with the factory based apprentices.

Forbes currently have 3 apprentices in training at their factory, however, this is a scheme they have successfully been part of for over a decade. Further to the fabrication apprentices Forbes employ, they have an additional 3 apprentices and 2 former apprentices at their design head office in Norfolk.

Rachael Hamilton’s visit enabled Forbes to showcase the training and support they provide and gave the apprentices the opportunity to show the work they do within the company. Apprenticeships help tackle skills gaps by allowing employees to learn on the job, working on real projects with experienced colleagues. It combines the confidence and qualifications needed to succeed.

Scottish Apprenticeship Week is an annual campaign co-ordinated by Skills Development Scotland (SDS) to encourage more employers to take on apprenticeships and more young people to consider an apprenticeship. This year’s campaign ‘Apprenticeships are the Business’ is aimed at highlighting the importance of apprenticeships to individuals, businesses and the economy.
