Andrew Scott Ltd celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2020 by continuing to invest in the next generation of skilled employees.
With several senior management positions now occupied by former apprentices, the longest established Welsh construction company is maximising the ‘Welsh pound’ by recruiting locally and training them for long-term careers.
Alongside the Margam based firm’s direct Apprenticeship Programme, Andrew Scott Ltd uses the Cyfle Shared Apprenticeship Scheme, having supported over 50 recruits through the scheme. Apprentices are placed through CITB Wales at Coleg Sir Gar and Neath Port Talbot College on Bricklaying, Carpentry and Civil Engineering Construction Operative courses.
Progress is monitored through regular meetings with training providers to identify and profile new apprenticeships and share constructive feedback to the quality of the training provided.
