Stagecoach has received further recognition for its apprenticeship scheme, this time being acknowledged by UK-wide job resource for young people seeking apprenticeships ‘Rate my Apprenticeship.’
The organisation asked current apprentices to rate their experience of working for Stagecoach, with results based on the 1,000s of reviews submitted by those who have completed an apprenticeship in the last year.
Apprentices were asked to answer ten questions about their role, the organisation and the social perks of their scheme; Stagecoach was named in the top 100 list of best apprenticeship employers.
The operator was also recently ranked as one of the country’s top 100 apprenticeship employers by the Department for Education, and has its highest ever number of apprentices in a variety of roles from driving and engineering to IT apprentice qualifications.
David Gawthorpe, Head of Resourcing, for Stagecoach said: “We are delighted to have received more recognition for our trailblazing apprenticeship programme. This is an exciting time to join Stagecoach and the variety, skills and social benefits these programmes give have been noticed and appreciated by both our current employees and also the Department for Education.
“Developing talent is something we take pride in, ensuring we have a strong pipeline of employees throughout our business who can go on to achieve great things here. We hope to see the number of our apprentices grow again next year, helping us achieve even more great things as a business and for the communities we serve.”
