Second national recognition for Stagecoach apprenticeship scheme

Stagecoach’s apprenticeship scheme has been named in the Top 100 list for Rate My Apprenticeship’s Best 100 Apprenticeship Employers table.

The job resource for young people seeking apprenticeships asked current apprenticeships 10 questions about their role and to rate their experience working for Stagecoach, while reviews were compiled by people who have completed an apprenticeship in the last year.

It is the second national recognition for the operator’s apprenticeship scheme after it was recognised by the Department for Education as one of the country’s top 100 apprenticeship employers.

“We are delighted to have received more recognition for our trailblazing apprenticeship programme,” says David Gawthorpe, Head of Resourcing for Stagecoach. “This is an exciting time to join Stagecoach and the variety, skills and social benefits these programmes give have been noticed and appreciated by both our current employees and also the Department for Education.

“Developing talent is something we take pride in, ensuring we have a strong pipeline of employees throughout our business who can go on to achieve great things here. We hope to see the number of our apprentices grow again next year, helping us achieve even more great things as a business and for the communities we serve.”

Stagecoach reports that it currently has its highest ever number of apprentices with over 1,000 individuals across the country being trained in roles from driving and engineering to IT.
