Sheffield Forgemasters International 17 Image 6Sheffield Forgemasters seeks a competitive advantage through being the best and through innovation to improve its products and processes. The development of its apprentices is an important means of achieving these goals.

Through the scheme, it is able to develop people who will form the backbone of the company in the future. They are being equipped with required skills, as identified during workforce planning. Both male and female apprentices are offered the support they need to succeed. Rebecca says:

Being female in a traditionally male environment is great - I love working with engineers.’

The company continues to invest £1 million a year in its apprenticeship training programme. Apprentices are offered a wide range of progression routes, tailored to both their needs and the needs of the business. Many apprentices progress to obtain further qualifications and develop long-term careers in the highest levels in the organisation.
