We are delighted that the hard work and achievements of our Net Zero Apprenticeships have been recognised after the programme was shortlisted in the Training Initiative of the Year category at this year’s Heating & Ventilation Awards.
This category is dedicated to recognising new training initiatives within the heating and ventilation industry and successful entrants must detail the high levels of planning and implementation, demonstrate the positive impacts of the programme and show evidence of increased profits or productivity.
The Net Zero Apprenticeships initiative, which is heading into its third year, will now go forwards to be judged by a team of industry experts, with the winner being announced in a ceremony at the London Hilton Metropole Hotel in late November.
So far, the Net Zero Apprenticeship programme has seen us recruit 21 candidates in two years, with a further 6 apprentices signed up for the 2023/24. Jenny Jackson, Vital Energi’s Resources Manager explained, “Being shortlisted in this category is a big honour as it not only recognises the outstanding achievements of our apprentices, but also the investment Vital Energi have made in the future of the UK’s low-carbon workforce.”
It is essential for us, as a nation, to inspire, cultivate and retain young talent so that they can take their place in the future workforce. I’d like to thank all the apprentices and the staff who have worked so hard to support them over the last few years and hope you all feel very proud of this achievement.
