An apprenticeship programme “above and beyond expectation” has earned local transport system company, Mobile Visual Information Systems (MVIS), a place on the shortlist for a national apprenticeship award.
The Tansley firm has been running its apprenticeship scheme for five years and has been shortlisted by national provider Learning Unlimited in the Investment in Apprentices category of its awards.
The investment award celebrates employers who are, “fully invested in apprenticeships and have integrated them into their workforce succession plans, above and beyond expectations,” and the winner will be announced at a ceremony in Sheffield at the end of November.
Said MVIS’ general manager, Anne Ashman: “The shortlisting provides us with further encouragement to continue our apprenticeship programme. We are confident that it will continue to generate employment opportunities for local people and business benefits for us, and ultimately to welcome new talent into our industry.
“Seven of our 17-strong team joined as apprentices and we’re in the process of recruiting an eighth. All have all worked hard and their retention rate has been excellent. Our assistant operations manager, Dom Bridge, was recently promoted to the role having joined us as an apprentice from Highfields school.”
MVIS’ products and solutions are created by Bartco UK and include leading-edge variable message signs, CCTV and radar. The company is ISO registered in quality and environmental management.
