Goodwin is a dynamic and profitable Engineering Group with worldwide external sales in excess of £120 million.
The success of Goodwin is based on engineering excellence and we are keen to train more engineers to provide for future growth.
The development of our Apprenticeship Training scheme generates opportunities for school leavers who can display the right attitude and passion for a future in engineering – careers within the group await apprentices who have the passion to succeed.
The apprentice project is based around an on the job training concept, which enables us to ensure that the apprentices show interest in what they are learning and that the right work ethic and attitude is adopted from the very start.
THERE IS A SIGNIFICANT SKILLS SHORTAGE OF HIGH QUALITY ENGINEERS IN THE UK
A RADICAL, NEW APPROACH IS NEEDED TO RAISE THE SKILL LEVEL OF THE INDIVIDUAL WORKER TO THE STANDARD THAT WE REQUIRE FOR THE FUTURE...
Apprentice Training Programme
All of our trainees will go through a formal four year apprentice training programme including off the job tuition in our bespoke training centre.
The majority of the training within the apprentice scheme will be in the form of one to one 6 week modules at the seven Goodwin UK company sites in Staffordshire. The placements are interspersed with weekly high level skills input from specialists within the Group.
Goodwin Apprentices who show the correct attitude and desire to perform well in the workplace will have the opportunity to progress to a career within the Goodwin group of companies, regardless of the qualifications that they arrive with.
Our continued investment in training people in the Goodwin Group is an essential part of business life.
Over 40 % of the senior managers and directors in our UK companies emanate from our training programmes for young persons especially via apprenticeships.
The engineering skills learnt at a young age as well as the development of a dynamic work ethic will in coming years provide the talent needed to succeed in the global competitive climate. We look forward to many of the latest 125 apprentices who started in the past four years progressing to senior company positions in years to come.
We are grateful to the core team of people shown here, who manage and run the Goodwin Apprentice programme for their perseverance, patience and enthusiasm.
