All the latest from Gilkes
Yesterday Gilkes hosted a visit from Gordon Birtwistle MP, The Governements Apprenticeship Ambassador and Tim Farron MP, who came to learn more about the Gilkes Apprenticeship programme. Gordon and Tim spent time meeting apprentices on the shop floor and awarded 6 of the apprentices with their graduation certificates.
Gilkes engineering apprenticeship is a 4 year course. Apprentices are mentored in machining, assembly and then migrated into the engineering design offices using 3D modelling programs to design and engineer the Gilkes product. Since 2009, 20% of the total recruitment at Gilkes has been through the apprenticeship programme.
