Don't put next generation of talent on lockdown

27 April, 2020

Make UK, the manufacturers’ organisation, is urging engineering and manufacturing employers not to delay their apprentice recruitment plans, as it has over 2,000 young people in its talent pool looking for apprenticeship opportunities.


Many engineering and manufacturing companies maybe thinking about delaying or cancelling their apprenticeship programs in light of the current COVID-19 crisis, but Stephen Mitchell, director of apprentices and technical training at Make UK’s Technology Hub in Aston, Birmingham, said companies must look at the long-term picture and not delay taking on new apprentices.

Stephen Mitchell said:

“We completely understand that these are testing times for all employers, but apprentices are resilient and full of drive, they help to provide fresh ideas and are vital for business growth. During this time of unprecedented change, you still need to look at the future of your business, and apprentices play a key part in this.

“Even if employers are not in a position to take on apprentices immediately, we would encourage them to start the conversations now. We are constantly holding telephone interviews, and our streamlined recruitment process means employers can access applications and candidates with minimal fuss and delay.”

Make UK's Apprentice Technology Centre in Aston is one of the UK's leading facilities delivering high specification training to around 1,450 Apprentices across the UK.

Despite the current lockdown, Make UK is still delivering training to its apprentice population of through high quality virtual teaching and assessments.

It recently registered a daily record figure for students using its online teaching resources, with over three quarters of its apprentice population able to continue their studies online in the first week of virtual teaching and assessments,
