Apprenticeships are the engine of our talent programme

11/2/21: As we celebrate National Apprenticeship Week 2021, TClarke Group CEO Mark Lawrence underlines the company’s longstanding commitment to delivering one of the best, most established apprenticeship schemes in UK industry.

“This year, we have gone out to some of our 200 plus apprentices across our organisation and asked them to respond to all kinds of questions. Our goal is to shine a light on the experience of an apprenticeship in the words of our apprentices themselves.

The theme for National Apprenticeship Week this year is ‘Build the Future’. In our company that is literally what happens. Our long established talent programme begins with high quality and very well supported apprenticeships. They are among the most sought after and best regarded in this or any industry and they lead to full time high quality jobs around the UK and, through full career development to senior posts and leadership roles including our Group board. I was myself a TClarke apprentice and so were many of my senior colleagues.

“My message to clients, shareholders, suppliers and our own people is simple and positive. In 2021 TClarke Apprenticeships are building the future, building skills and careers sustainably and creating value. Each of our apprentices has a world of opportunity in front of them and in these films you can get a sense of the commitment and optimism that our apprentices share.”
